2019 Candlelighters Fun Walk

Calling All Walkers!

Candlelighters Candlelighters Candlelighters Candlelighters

Join us for the 2019 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.  Monies raised from the Fun Walk go to fund Candlelighters Camp CLIFF – our annual family camp for children with cancer as well as their siblings and parents - because one day, cancer will be gone, but their families will be here forever.
