September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Covid-19 hasn't stopped local kids from being diagnosed with Cancer. Our kids still have to travel outside of the Greater Rockford Area for treatment (Chicago & Madison). Their families are still faced with the challenges of travel costs, lodging, eating out, vehicle repairs, home maintenance, you name it, all on top of battling Childhood Cancer.
These families need Heroes! On Thursday, September 2nd, from 5:30-7:30pm, we will be competing in the Hero Challenge Fire Truck Pull to raise money for local families battling Childhood Cancer. To add a little competition to the event, the Rockford Police Department has challenged the Rockford Fire Department in the Fire Truck Pull!
This event kickstarts our biggest fundraising effort of the year. From the Fire Truck Pull on September 2nd, through our Blood Drive on September 18th, we will be raising money. All money we raise during this time go directly to support local families. Your donations mean someone can get to the hospital to see their child during treatment. Your donations mean families can buy groceries when they are home between treatment stays. Every dollar means something!
Be a Hero and donate today!
