The Gold Together for childhood cancer movement was created by childhood brain cancer survivor Cole Eicher, who envisioned a Gold Together team at every Relay For Life event starting with his team in St. Petersburg, Florida. Through Gold Together, volunteers can raise awareness, support families facing childhood cancer, and connect those families to a lifetime of resources through the American Cancer Society.
This September, Gold Together Champions will raise funds for the American Cancer Society during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Funds raised directly support research, advocacy, and patient support dedicated to childhood cancer. Cancer doesn't fight fair at any age, but it is particularly devastating for children. With your help, we will help kids fight back
