On Saturday, September 29 at 9:00 am, hundreds of local residents will gather at Wade Oval Park in University Circle for the CureSearch Walk to celebrate and honor children from across Northeast Ohio who have or have had cancer while raising money for CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a national non-profit which funds children’s cancer research.
Funds raised through events such as the CureSearch Walk allow children with cancer to receive world-class treatment and care at hospitals close to home such as Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic, and Akron Children’s Hospital. These hospitals are all members of the Children’s Oncology Group, the nation’s largest children’s cancer research collaborative.
The Walk takes place in September, which is National Children’s Cancer Awareness Month. The Walk is being led by a number of Cleveland area families that have been directly impacted by children’s cancer.
