The looming rain could not keep the Tulsa community from celebrating and honoring those affected by children's cancer. More than 1,000 walkers gathered on Saturday, September 28 for the 3rd Annual Tulsa CureSearch Walk at Oral Roberts University. Lead by the Tulsa Walk committee, more than $75,000 was raised to help fund innovative and critical research.
Even with the threat of rain, walkers took time to remember those in their community who had lost their battle with cancer through a balloon release. The celebrations were then brought inside where participants enjoyed food, family fun activities, and an appearance by Batman. Emcee Sharon Phillips from Fox23 helped celebrate the 40 survivors in attendance by naming them CureSearch Champions, and participated in a drawing for special prizes; every survivor went home with a gift.
The day was a reminder of the incredible strides that have been made in children's cancer research and also how much more work needs to be done. CureSearch is dedicated to funding research to change the odds for those children most at risk, with help from communities like Tulsa.
