Taking Steps Toward a Cure

Optimist International will be hosting an organization-wide walk to promote childhood cancer awareness and raise much needed funds. All Clubs are asked to sponsor a CCC Walk during June, Optimist International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This show of unified support will demonstrate the organization's mission to "be the leading force to rid the world of childhood cancer."

Participating Clubs may designate how they would like to utilize the funds they raise, whether it be sending them to the Optimist International Foundation, designated for research at Johns Hopkins or for use at a local organization.

If you have any questions about the walk, please contact the Programs Department at (800) 500-8130 or via e-mail at ccc@optimist.org.
