Love to Hike? Want to use your boots to make a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer? CureSearch for Children’s Cancer’s Ultimate Hike is looking for a volunteer coach to prepare hikers in the Kansas City area for a 22 mile hike on the Ozark Highlands Hiking Trail.

You’ll create local training opportunities for Kansas City based hikers who are fundraising and training for the event, then accompany the hikers as a coach on the trail the day of the hike on October 15. (Coaches are not required to fundraise and meals and lodging are provided.)

Children with cancer need us now more than ever. Contact Cassie at Cassie.Zedlacher@curesearch.org to find out more about this life changing opportunity.

For more information on the hike and hike weekend, visit www.ultimatehike.org and click on "find a hike" and Ozark Trail.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to end childhood cancer by driving targeted and innovative research with measurable results in an accelerated time frame.

Description

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer is a national non-profit foundation that accelerates the search for cures for children’s cancer by driving innovation, transcending research barriers and solving the field’s most challenging problems. We fight every day to make treatments and cures possible for the 47 children diagnosed with cancer each day. We do this in three ways:

  • We accelerate the search for cures by posing essential challenges to scientists and inviting teams to overcome them with innovative research approaches.
  • We transcend the barriers of a broken research system by establishing new pathways to end children’s cancer.
  • We provide resources and education, so no child faces a cancer diagnosis without a fully equipped support team.
