Taking steps to support children facing childhood cancer.
A diagnosis of cancer in a child is devastating. Besides the incredible emotional toll it takes on the family and, of course, the child, it is estimated that one-third of a family’s net income will be redirected to costs incurred while their child is in treatment. Often, one parent will have to leave their employment during this time. The financial and emotional impact on families can be unbearable.
This is why, each year, we hold the Childcan Walk.
This year's Childcan Walk will take place in person! Join us:
Friday, September 23, 2022, at Springbank Gardens in London,
Saturday, September 24, 2022, at the Vollmer Recreational Complex in LaSalle,
you can walk with your family and friends at a place significant to you on any day in September.
There is no registration fee. Of course, we need you to fundraise, because without you, we could not support children and their families. We hope that you are motivated by this year's awareness raising SWAG.
All of your fundraising efforts support Childcan and the families we serve throughout western Ontario, providing direct financial assistance, social, and emotional support, and will fund vital pediatric research at Children’s Hospital at the London Health Sciences Centre.
