Candlelighters First Ever Childhood Cancer Awareness Walk

Clayton Schneider Clayton Schneider

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we are kicking it off with a grassroots walk initiated by Shelly Schneider - mom of childhood cancer survivor Clayton Schneider.

"We are doing this to let people see that this horrible disease can attack ANY of our kids!  It doesn't matter where they come from or how much money the family makes... No one is exempt.  If we bring awareness, then maybe, just maybe, we can find a cure for our kids and we won't lose any more of them!" said Shelly.

The walk is August 28th at Medical Lake Waterfront Park on a paved walking trail - stroller and wheelchair accessible. Medical Lake Mayor John Higgins will open the walk. Click here for your official entry form. No pre-registration is necessary and the entrance fee is an optional donation of your choice. Face painting, picnic, and fun after the walk.
