National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

TOKC Orange Goes Gold

TOKC’s trademark orange is going gold for a good reason, and you can, too! September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and its symbolic gold ribbon represents all forms of cancer affecting children and adolescents.  There are many opportunities to join us in raising awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research during this special month.

First off, add to your wardrobe! T-shirts emblazoned with TOKC Orange Goes Gold on the back are on sale now in our shop on our website. They range in price between 10-15 dollars depending on size and will not only help you shine in a crowd but also raise awareness about pediatric cancer. The front of the shirt reads “Strength, Love, TOKC!”  Make sure to post a picture of yourself wearing the special TOKC Orange Goes Gold tee on Instagram and Twitter using the tag @TOKC1 and hashtag #TOKCOrangeGoesGold. On Facebook, use the tag @TriumphOverKidCancer. We love to see our supporters showing off their TOKC swag!

You also have a chance to win big with the TOKC Orange Goes Gold Giveaway during the month of September! We put together a great grand prize package: a $300 HEB gift card, a $150 Whataburger gift card and a $50 gift card to L&RK at the dry bar located in Corpus Christi. You can find the giveaway on Facebook and Instagram during the month of September.  We made it simple to sign up! Look for our TOKC Orange Goes Gold Giveaway post, tag three friends in the comments and share. Voila- you are entered!  We will select and notify the winner after the month is over. Good luck!

Another way to raise awareness about childhood cancer is to “Stick It to Cancer!” You can easily participate in our new social media challenge by creating a video of you showcasing your special talent or passion. For tennis players, think of recording your rocket serve. Or, for those with good eye-hand coordination, capture how you can juggle oranges.  Just use your creativity and remember to challenge your friends, colleagues, and family members to do the same! Share the video of you doing that special talent on any social media platform, tag @TOKC1 or @TriumphOverKidCancer, and use the hashtag #StickItToCancer for the chance to have your video featured on our page.

Giving a donation in September is the gold standard when it comes to making a difference. Only four percent of federal research dollars go to pediatric cancer. Triumph Over Kid Cancer Foundation’s mission is to support medical studies searching for new treatments and therapies for children with cancer.  Every dollar is matched! So, if you give $50, $100 goes to support research! To donate click here.

Whether you join in on one or all four of our special ways to raise funds and provide relief, respite and JOY to cancer patients and their families through our programs, we thank you for your support as TOKC Orange Goes Gold!
