The Gold Together event scheduled to take place at Craighead Forest Park on September 11th has been altered.
“Gold Together Arkansas is celebration of Courageous Kids who have battled Childhood Cancer,” said Jennifer Clay, Development Manager for the American Cancer Society. Jennifer expanded on the reason for canceling the event despite other events with ACS carrying on – this event was especially designed for families and kids. “We raise funds to support childhood cancer research, education, advocacy and services, as well as cancer prevention efforts targeting children. Because of the rise of COVID-19 cases in our area, and out of extreme caution of keeping our un-vaccinated children safe, we made the decision to cancel our in-person celebration on September 11th. But, childhood cancer hasn’t stopped – so neither are we!”
Gold Together Arkansas still needs your help!
On September 28th, Northeast Arkansas will work together to raise $100k in a day for Gold Together Arkansas. Follow the American Cancer Society on Facebook & Instagram for the latest updates.
