2020 Candlelighters Fun Walk

Walking Alongside Childhood Cancer Families Every Step of the Way!

Join us for the 2020 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 provided 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 of our programs and services include the entire family - because one day, cancer will be gone, but our families will be here forever.
