CureSearch for Children's Cancer funds and supportstargeted and innovative children's cancer research with measurableresults, and is the authoritative source of information and resourcesfor all those affected by children's cancer.
On April 19-20 more than 400 people gathered for the annual MJ Golf Classic! The event, now in it's 13th year, raised more than $415,000 for children's cancer research. Attendees enjoyed three rousing rounds of golf at the Jay Morrish Golf Course at Champions Circle as well as a kickoff bash with the popular Texas hold 'em poker tournament at the Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night.
This year, participants once again had the opportunity to take part in the Texas driving experience, where professional racing instructors give attendees an inside look into the sport of road racing. Traveling at more than 160 miles per hour, 200 riders experienced the thrill of the ride from the front seat of a race car.
Event founders, Mo and Jim, were surprised and honored to be presented with the C.H. Robinson Hero Award for their years of hard work and dedication. The first C.H. Robinson Hero Award recognizes those C.H. Robinson employees or branches that have made a significant contribution, through charitable giving, events, or unique activities, to the communities in which they work and live. CureSearch is proud to stand in partnership with Mo and Jim as we work to accelerate the search for cures.
The fun was not just on the race and golf courses. Guests joined Tarrant County cancer supporters for the CureSearch Walk. Children and their families gathered together to honor and remember those in their community who have been affected by children's cancer. A moment was taken to honor those who have lost their fight while survivors and those in treatment were called to the stage to receive medals and were named CureSearch Champions during the opening ceremony.
The weekend was a reminder of how far children's cancer research has come, and how much work is left to be done.
