ALL PLEDGES DONATED TO: POGO.ca Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario
To whom it may concern,
I am a Pediatrician in Kitchener Waterloo and the Founder/Chair Person for the Kitchener Kids With Cancer Run. This annual event raises money to support childhood cancer through POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario). As a pediatrician, caring for children with cancer, I see ﬁrst hand how this horrible disease affects not just the child but the whole family. Families lives are put on hold, jobs are lost, family incomes are drastically decreased, and school years are lost. These wonderful and inspirational children, however, go on ﬁghting and thanks to all the treatment research (supported by POGO), we have great success rates.
POGO provides ﬁnancial assistance to families, interlink nursing and research into new therapies. POGO also has a satellite clinic at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, and other community hospitals across Ontario, so that our children can receive cancer treatment and medical management closer to home.This annual event is a great way that we can support these young children who are our future and help them and their families with the ﬁght of their life. In our ﬁrst year we raised $17,000 and were one of the top fundraisers for POGO.
We need your help to make this race a success. Please consider sponsoring this event.
The kids and I thank you for your support.
