Friends and Family:
It’s the ninth year for the Mally family to support Candlelighters! This Fun Walk is one of the major fundraisers for this wonderful foundation and we would love for you to support our efforts. As many of you are aware, I am a Board Member and a big supporter of Candlelighters mission. We are walking in honor of all the families who face childhood cancer. We know Candlelighters makes a difference in the lives of childhood cancer families each and every day.
The Fun Walk raises money for Candlelighters annual camp – a get-a-way for the whole family. Many camps offer the child with cancer this opportunity, but Candlelighers believes that it is critically important for the whole family to come together, away from the treatment facilities and their everyday hectic lives. Quality time as a family is essential in their struggle to beat the disease. The cost to send a camper is $200 and this year they plan on hosting 200 campers. Any amount you choose to give is a blessing – no amount is too small!
We encourage all our friends and family to Walk where they are with us virtually this year to continue our social distancing efforts. As you can imagine, our Candlelighters families are considered a high-risk demographic in this COVID-19 world, and we need to be doing our part to keep our families safe.
Funds are needed now more than ever, because unlike a lot of things right now, CANCER DOESN'T STOP.
Candlelighters is a Houston 501(c)(3) charity. They serve local families facing childhood cancer who are being treated at the Texas Medical Center, but families come from around the world for assistance. Candlelighters programs and services are the direct result of the vision of those founding families and the experiences they share. In that spirit, those families who started Candlelighters and recognized the need for “family time” developed Camp CLIFF.
Thank you for your support!
