GO GOLD FOR KIDS WITH CANCER
Like other forms of cancer, childhood cancer has an international symbol, the gold ribbon. This is an easily-recognizable symbol to unite under, if people know what it means. Sadly, when asked, most people would not be able to identify the gold ribbon as the symbol for childhood cancer awareness.
In 1997, a group of parents started discussing the creation of a universal awareness ribbon for children with cancer. Many colors were considered, but after much thought, it was decided that the color gold was the perfect choice for our cause. Gold is a precious metal, and our children are precious.
Go Gold is a way that your school or workplace can join in the fight to beat childhood cancer and provide HOPE to those who need it most. Organize a Go Gold fundraising event and help raise awareness of this important symbol. Each event creates awareness of childhood cancer issues, creates supportive communities for local families who are dealing with childhood cancer, and raises funds to provide information and support materials for children currently fighting cancer.
