CureFest for Childhood Cancer
Held during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CureFest for Childhood Cancer’s mission is to make childhood cancer research a national priority by uniting the childhood cancer community, the general public, and government officials as one voice against childhood cancer.
“One of the reasons there has never been a childhood cancer movement is that there are thousands of tiny childhood cancer foundations and groups that have the same goals but are not working together,” says AWOCCF’s Mike Gillette. “We are partnering with several like-minded organizations and advocates to change this reality.
The 2018 CureFest for Childhood Cancer event drew more than 2,500 people from over 45 states.
CureFest 2019 will be held on September 20 – 23. On Friday and Monday, youth advocates will lobby members of Congress and their staffs during “Climb the Hill.” On Saturday there will be a Rally, a Meet and Greet and a Candlelight Vigil at the White House. On Sunday, there will be a CureFest Walk and Festival.
