KCF Marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month With Carnival

Renaissance Charter School safety patrol members gave out school supply bags.

The Kids Cancer Foundation hosted its annual Childhood Cancer Awareness Social with a carnival-themed event at the Kids Cancer Center in Royal Palm Beach on Saturday, Sept. 10.

As September marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the foundation uses this time to recognize the children and families affected by childhood cancers, and to emphasize the importance of supporting research on these devastating conditions. The carnival, however, was just for the families to have fun, socialize, eat, play games and collect prizes.

Volunteers from Journey Church, Life Church and Christ Fellowship came out to help at the many booths set up inside and outside the center. Renaissance Charter School safety patrol members generously put together school supply bags and passed them out to families. Author Pamela Jaffey attended and signed her dinosaur-themed children’s books, which she gave away.

The Kids Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit with a mission is to provide hope and support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders. Learn more at www.kidscancersf.org.
