In recognition of the fact that 400,000+ children and adolescents around the world are diagnosed with cancer each year*, September has been designated as the month for raising awareness of childhood cancer and funds for treatment and research. Supporters often wear a gold ribbon — the colour associated with childhood cancers.
Put on your exercise shoes and start stretching!
STEP–TEMBER is a family-oriented virtual walk from September 1st to 30th. Participants go outside, get moving and enjoy the last of the nice weather while promoting September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and raising funds to purchase priority medical equipment in support of Oncology.
Register yourself or your team at any time and start fundraising. Then go for a stroll, walk, run, bike ride or any other movement -- either alone or with family and friends any time between September 1st to 30th.
All donations of $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt.
