Cure Pediatric Cancer One Step At A Time

Sunset Family

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.


We’re getting active here at UNATION by joining the #43Challenge! Some of our City Managers have joined the Walking Funds the Cure Virtual Run.

Everyone has their own unique reason as to why they are walking, but one thing we all have in common is that we hope to find a cure for the children.
