While the country battles COVID-19, thousands of children and families continue to battle childhood cancer. Even during the pandemic, Childhood Cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease for children in the U.S. and around the world.
Think of your worst day of running. Think about your hard training. Think about your blisters, your black toes and your aching muscles. Now think of how lucky you are that you're able to run because right now there is a child who can't because they are trying to beat cancer. You can do something about this. Right here! Right now!
