Team Connor was started by the parents of Connor, a sweet boy who lost his four year battle with cancer in 2009. They started this foundation because they saw the toll childhood cancer took on families, both emotionally and financially.
Cancer kills more children each year than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, asthma and AIDS combined, yet the National Cancer Institute allocates only three percent of its budget to pediatric cancer.
TeamConnor has raised $1 million in its mission to find cures for childhood cancers. And the fight continues. All because of one inspirational little boy with a warrior’s heart.
SAVE and Pay It Forward:
Today, Hawaiian Falls has teamed up with TeamConnor to bring awareness and raise money! You can currently buy $20 tickets (good thru the rest of the year!) by going to teamconnor.org.
They have a run coming up in Frisco in October. I’ll be posting more about that soon as well.
