Childhood cancer doesn’t discriminate and affects kids from all walks of life with different disease types and treatment with the hope to win the battle. Cancer is very heartbreaking for the families and kids dealing with everything associated with the disease.
Each year, the Candlelights Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada selects Ambassadors to represent children afflicted by cancer in the Southern Nevada region.
I was overjoyed when Melissa from Candlelighters called and asked if I would take a few photos of this year’s ambassadors for their upcoming 23rd Annual 5K & 1 mile “Race for Our Kids.” The race will be held on September 14, 2013 at the Exploration Park in the Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community. Chet Buchanan from 98.5 KLUC Morning Zoo [a radio show in Las Vegas] will be hosting the fun filled event.
If you want to volunteer or have a team that wants to participate please go to the Candlelighters’ web site and register.
