Sahara Strong: Conquering the Sand to End Childhood Cancers Together
Darin and Julie refer to themselves as two ordinary people, tackling an extraordinary feat. While training for the Marathon des Sables in the Sahara Desert, their love of adventure sparked a passion to conquer kids' cancer. Their ultimate goal and motivation is to help every child finish their own race successfully.
Run, walk, or even cycle your way towards a cure — any way you like to get active can be a great opportunity to raise funds and help us conquer childhood cancer!
The Floral Park community is passionate when it comes to raising funds and awareness about pediatric cancer. The annual gala, led by “Aiden’s Army”, honors the memory of its namesake who believed “he got cancer, so that he may one day cure it”. The fundraiser empowers women to join and participate in other ways to participate outside the barber cape.
Looking for the perfect time to raise funds for research? Turn annual moments like a birthday, wedding, or “cancerversary” into a meaningful fundraiser. Invite family and friends to donate instead of giving gifts and be a part of something bigger on your special day!
