For the 10th year, Team Love for Lolly is participating in the 2017 Parkway Run & Walk on Sunday, Sept. 24. This annual event is a 5K Run and 2K Family Fun Walk that is near and dear to my heart because Lauren (AKA Lolly) is alive today because of the lifesaving treatments she received at CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia).
Last year more than 10,000 participants came together to raise over $1 million for cancer research and care at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. This year, Love for Lolly's team goal is to raise $5,000. Donating is safe and easy, simply click on the “Support Me” link below. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible and will make a difference for kids who have been touched by cancer.
I hope you’ll help us to support cancer research!
Peter, Darlene, Katherine...and Lolly!
Why this is so important to me:
Patients Need Us Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has cancer.” However, 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they’re 20 years old.
Breakthroughs Are Upon Us CHOP’s Center for Childhood Cancer Research is one of the most distinguished research programs in the nation. Every day, CHOP’s Cancer Center team is redefining what a cancer diagnosis means for a child. The center offers the most advanced therapies available anywhere in the world, including cutting-edge clinical trials that reprogram the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.
How You Can Help Make an Immediate Impact Today 100% of every donation helps CHOP make important breakthroughs in understanding the causes of childhood cancer – and developing treatments that improve cure rates.
