To help children with cancer and to make those tough days better, we are organizing our 2nd Annual Santa Claus for a Cause 5K run/walk to raise money and collect toys for our Christmas Gift Giveaway event on December 20th.
The Children Cancer Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization in Fort Myers, FL. (Tax I.D.: 271463144) Our mission is to support children with cancer and their families in various ways in order to make those hard times easier. One of these ways is to organize special events that help children forget about the hospital and the treatments and experience fun and joy instead.
In May 2013 we took eight families, who have been touched by childhood cancer, to Discovery Cove in Orlando to swim with dolphins. The experience has become a lifelong memory for all the little patients and their families. From the raised money we again would like to organize an unforgettable, life changing experience for them.
The admission fee for the 5K is $15 for children under 18 as well as for FGCU students with valid student I.D. and $20 for adults. Santa Claus hats will be given out for free to create unity in addition to some other giveaways. Hundred percent of the admission fee is going towards the Children Cancer Foundation, Inc. Last year we had over a 100 runners, but this year we are expecting to at least double this number.
Make sure to get there before 9 am to have enough time to check in and warm up. You can come as early as 7:30-8am to check in.
