Watch Batteries for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we’re proud to be partnering with the Children’s Cancer Research Fund. Every dollar from watch battery sales during the month of September will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Research Fund. They invest in bold and new ideas to revolutionize the way childhood cancer is treated.
Why Children’s Cancer Research Fund?
Going into this year, we knew we wanted to partner with a local charity. There are so many incredible non-profits and charities in the Twin Cities. After discussing what kind of charity we would support this year, we realized that many people are impacted by or know someone whose life has been changed by childhood cancer. Children’s Cancer Research Fund supports the brightest scientists whose ideas make the greatest impact for children with cancer. They also support vital family services and advocate for childhood cancer education and awareness.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund Amplifies the Power of a Dollar
Every donation to Children’s Cancer Research Fund provides seed money grants that help researchers advance new ideas and win competitive, multi-million dollar grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute. Every dollar donated leads to an average of $18 in additional funding.
