Team Gold

How We Relay

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We’ll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we’ll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.

Team Gold represents Go Gold - which is childhood cancer awareness. This year all money raised by Team Gold will go directly to pediatric cancer research.

Important Facts (from the Curesearch.org):

Each year, the parents of approximately 15,300 kids will hear the words “your child has cancer.” Across all ages, ethnic groups and socio-economics, this disease remains the number one cause of death by disease in children. Despite major advances from an overall survival rate of 10 percent just fifty years ago to nearly 90 percent today, for many rare cancers, the survival rate is much lower. Furthermore, the number of diagnosed cases annually has not declined in nearly 20 years.

Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer.

12% of children diagnosed with cancer do not survive.

Children’s cancer affects all ethnic, gender and socio-economic groups.

The average age of children diagnosed is six.

More than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year.

60% of children who survive cancer suffer late-effects, such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers.

There are approximately 375,000 adult survivors of children’s cancer in the United States.

That equates to 1 in 530 adults ages 20-39.
