CancerFree Kids has one mission – to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease in children by funding promising research. Since it began, CancerFree KIDS has funded 142 research projects totaling nearly $5.3 million, and you can get involved by participating in one of these family-friendly events benefiting CancerFree Kids!

The CancerFree Kids 15th annual Butterfly Walk recently took place at Cottell Park this month to support pediatric cancer research, and it was a huge success! It included a Butterfly Walking Storyboard which featured fun interactive games and activities for families to complete throughout the park (or at home!) – with over 500 participants raising over $90k! Learn more about this yearly event and how you can get involved for years to come at cancerfreekids.org, plus check out the fun turnout on YouTube: youtu.be/X2ArpuhTFCs
