Every day 43 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer. Every day 43 families’ lives are changed forever. COVID-19 has affected us all to some degree. As we cope with the drastic changes in our daily lives, some have more adjustments to make than others. Children with fragile immune systems are among the most vulnerable to the outbreak. Let’s change that and help cure pediatric cancer.
The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure to help fight this rapid growth. One of the many ways they are doing so is with the #43Challenge. Anyone, even you, can join in on this challenge. The NPCF challenges you to walk one mile for the next 43 days!
A virtual walk, which lasts until April 30th, is in full effect! Joining in is simple. You can register here with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation and start walking anywhere you please.
“I’m walking for the millions of children who battle every day to survive. The NPCF provides these strong and resilient children with groundbreaking research, support, and trials to ensure that they have the best possible treatment!”
“Walking helps me collect my thoughts and recenter myself. I will walk one mile for 43 days to support pediatric cancer patients and help myself maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
We challenge you to participate in the #43Challenge and share your journey as well! Help raise awareness about pediatric cancer by tagging us on Instagram or Facebook for a chance to be featured on our page!
Please remember the CDC’s guidelines to help contain COVID-19 while participating. Maintain the recommended 6ft distance away from others.
