TeamCallen wants to raise the bar on childhood cancer awareness and advocacy, and what better time to do that than during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month?! Those of us who are family and friends continually witness the incredible strength, perseverance and love that the Tyson family and other families battling childhood cancers display day in and day out, and at the same time we wonder what we can do to REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE. How can we move the needle on battling childhood cancers?
Our answer is this: The Inaugural ‘TeamCallen Goes Gold!’ event. What is that? Well, TeamCallen is partnering with Ravenchase Adventures in RVA to host an adventure that is part National Treasure hunt, part Amazing Race, and part Escape Room challenge. TeamCallen wants to see children, youth, teens, and families coming out to fight for other children, youth and teens battling cancers along side of their amazing families.
9/10/16 UPDATE: We have some exciting additions to our event! Carytown Burger and Fries has partnered with us and will be at the finish line with its food truck to feed hungry scavengers. Carytown Burger will further support this event by making a donation to Connor's Heroes Foundation. And for those of you looking for something sweet, the Baking Divas Cheesecakes will also be on site serving up some delicious desserts.
When is this? On Sunday, September 25, from 11-1, we want to paint the town GOLD by taking part in this team challenge adventure and supporting an end to childhood cancers. Funds raised will go to support childhood cancer research and local families.
Registration is happening NOW! Just click on the URL below, and that will take you to the information and registration form. For this inaugural event, we are going low tech (but HIGH energy) and asking for folks to print the form and mail in registration and payment.
We want to see downtown RVA in GOLD on September 25. Will you be there with us?!?!
