I was honored to be asked to document the annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation Fundraiser in Canton, Ohio . According to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation website:
“Our mission is to find cures for childhood cancers and to give survivors long and healthy lives. We are the largest private (non-government) funder of childhood cancer research grants. By funding cooperative research through the Children’s Oncology Group, we give kids nationwide access to the very latest in research and clinical trials. Thanks to a grant review system that impresses the experts, we fund only the very best childhood cancer research. At St. Baldrick’s alone, of the $32.4 million needed to fund every grant application that received an outstanding score in June 2016, only $22 million was available and granted.”
St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a great charity that does wonderful work for children. The event in Canton, Ohio was one of many across the country. My job was to simple document it. But I want to the really capture the spirit of the event and the event participants. People were genuinely enthusiastic and very happy to be participating. It was such an honor to a small part in the St. Baldrick’s Foundation quest to raise awareness but, more importantly, raise money for childhood cancer.
