CureSearch Walk Event Coming to Madison

CureSearch, a non-profit foundation whose mission is to provide resources for those affected by children's cancer, is currently planning their inaugural walk on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at Vilas Park in Madison, Wisconsin and is looking for participants and volunteers.

Registration begins at 8:30am, and the opening ceremony at 10am.

The walk allows CureSearch to raise valuable funds for children's cancer research, honor the children affected by cancer, and gives patients and families the opportunitity to meet and connect with others with similar experiences.Through events, like the CureSearch Walk, thousands of families are joining together across the country and making a difference.

"Not only does CureSearch raise funds for promising research conducted at over 175 hospitals across the US, including American Family Children's Hospital, they also offer various levels of support for families. Through their Hope and Help Journals and Family Handbooks, they are also able to provide families with additional information and help for every step of their journey. Through community support, these two resources are completely free for our families and hospitals to use," said Ellie Stefanic of CureSearch.

In addition to providing resources to individuals affected by cancer, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer funds basic and translational research and supports National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials conducted by the Children’s Oncology group, a collaborative group of more than 6,500 medical professionals at over 175 hospitals across the country, including the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center and American Family Children’s Hospital.

"Only research cure children's cancer, and we hope you'll help us take one more step so that one day, every child diagnosed with cancer is guaranteed a cure," commented Stefanic.
