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 Madison, WI area for a 25.5 or 12.7 mile hike on the Superior Trail.

You’ll create local training opportunities for hikers who are fundraising and training for the event, then accompany as a coach on the trail the day of the hike on August 24th. (Coaches are not required to fundraise and meals and lodging are provided hike weekend.)

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

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.
