What a month Transporting the Brave! Our brave riders have kept us very busy in all sorts of weather. We did 22 runs last month, with three done by volunteer drivers. Our schedule includes several kiddos who are actively in treatment, in recovery from bone marrow transplant, or going to off-treatment follow ups. Every one of our young riders faces challenges in their fight against cancer, and we’re honored to help alleviate at least one worry for them. You can help by sponsoring a ride — click below for options!
This is our brave warrior, Fatima, who is battling a brain tumor. She is one of 4 new riders we’ve driven this month, along with our regular kiddos. As many of you already know, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We definitely do not need a special month to remind us of this awful disease — we live with the reality every day — but this month did remind us of the bigger picture of childhood cancer. 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer every day. We know we can’t help them all, but we also know that we can make a difference for the ones who need us. When you sponsor a ride for kids like Fatima, you are helping us in our mission of Transporting the Brave.
