Join us for the 2021 Fun Walk benefiting Candlelighters. Candlelighters serves children with cancer and their families receiving treatment in the Texas Medical Center and provides all of its services and programs at NO COST to these families. Funds raised from the Fun Walk help fund all of Candlelighters programs and services proivded daily for childhood cancer families; including: hospital parking assistance, emotional support from families who have survived childhood cancer, meal passes, groceries, gas cards, and more! These programs and services are provided to any and all families with a child who has received a cancer diagnosis. As cancer affects the entire family, all our programs and services include the entire family - because one day, cancer will be gone, but our families will be here forever.
Walk where you choose on Saturday, September 11, 2021!
We'll be at Terry Hershey Park, but encourage you to walk safely wherever you'd like, and with each step you take, know you are walking alongside childhood cancer families.
This year, we're challenging you to take 4,265 steps on Walk Day (about 2 miles) - each step represents a Candlelighters family - a family who Candlelighters has provided support for during and after their child's cancer treatment; support for the child with cancer, the parents, and the siblings!
Join the VIRTUAL conversation! - Facebook link coming soon!
ONLINE WALK RAFFLE - online raffle coming soon!
Get your family, friends and company involved! Here are the ways YOU can participate:
1. Candlelighters Family Team (family walking in honor of their child who has/had cancer)
2. Community Team (family or group other than one directly affected by childhood cancer walking in support of Candlelighters mission)
3. Corporate Team (office, company or large corporation walking together for Candlelighters mission)
4. Individual Walker (not on a team but still want to help fundraise)
TEAM CAPTAINS - when you start your team, we encourage you to recruit at least 10 friends or family members to register and walk with your team! Each walker who raises $100 or more will receive a free Walk T-Shirt on the day of the walk! Remember, the more friends and family members you recruit, the more team members you have fundraising! Don't forget to set a goal for your team!
