“SUPER HEROS KIDS” will be this Events Theme!

THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE & ASSOCIATES LODGE 5, AND BLUE KNIGHTS CHAPTER XX, 1ST ANNUAL CHARITY RIDE & CAR SHOW IS AN EVENT TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUALS, GROUPS, AND ORGANIZATIONS IN NEED, FROM OUR COMMUNITY.

THIS YEAR’S EVENT WILL PRIMARILY BENEFIT UVA’S CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL – ONCOLOGY CLINIC AND CURESEARCH – CHILDREN’S CANCER NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION.

The University of Virginia (UVA) Children’s Hospital Oncology Clinic – Treating Kids With Cancer. While medical advances in cancer treatments have dramatically reduced the mortality rate from childhood cancers, the disease continues to be a leading cause of death among children and teens.

At UVA, they offer the latest treatment options for cancer, providing care that is targeted to the special needs of children and teens. Because children with cancer often develop other medical problems, our pediatric cancer specialists work closely with doctors and surgeons in other specialties to provide comprehensive care for children. 

 

Superheroes Unite! These events are unique superhero-themed events around the nation. They bring together families, friends, caregivers, and supporters whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer. Each event is a celebration of those superheroes who survived and a tribute to those who lost their battle.

Typical events include a mile to three-mile walks, family-fun activities such as face painting, games, music, food, and a ceremony with the goal to raise money for children’s cancer research and treatments.

CURESEARCH FOR CHILDREN’S CANCER IS A U.S.-BASED NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION THAT ACCELERATES THE SEARCH FOR CURES FOR CHILDREN’S CANCER BY DRIVING INNOVATION, OVERCOMING RESEARCH BARRIERS AND SOLVING THE FIELD’S MOST CHALLENGING PROBLEMS. WE FIGHT EVERY DAY TO MAKE TREATMENTS AND CURES POSSIBLE FOR THE 43 CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER EACH DAY. WE DO THIS BY:

– CATAPULTING STRONG MEDICAL Research  THROUGH THE RESEARCH PIPELINE TO ADVANCE BETTER, LESS-TOXIC CHILDREN’S CANCER TREATMENTS.

– BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS AND CONVENING THE RIGHT PLAYERS TO FOCUS ON OUR SHARED GOAL: SAVING KIDS NOW.

– PROVIDING RESOURCES AND EDUCATION, SO NO CHILD FACES A CANCER DIAGNOSIS WITHOUT A FULLY-EQUIPPED SUPPORT TEAM.

OUR MISSION IS TO END CHILDHOOD CANCER BY DRIVING TARGETED AND INNOVATIVE RESEARCH WITH MEASURABLE RESULTS IN AN ACCELERATED TIME FRAME. OUR RESEARCH VISION IS TO IMPROVE CHILDHOOD CANCER TREATMENT AND CURES TO DELIVER THE POTENTIAL FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER PATIENTS TO LEAD LONG HEALTHY LIVES.
