The Charlotte CureSearch Walk was held at the beautiful Freedom Park in Charlotte, North Carolina on November 9. More than 300 walkers enjoyed musical entertainment from DJ Dale. Jennifer Pope, MD from Levine Children's Hospital spoke about the importance of increased funding for children's cancer research and reminded the crowd how important all of their efforts are in finding a cure. Emcee and local WBTV anchor, Molly Grantham, shared some inspiring words with the crowd before inviting the 20 children in treatment and survivors in attendance to the stage to receive medals and be named CureSearch Champions. Walkers also remember those who have not survived with a balloon release.
This year participants raised more than $45,000 to help fund innovative and targeted children's cancer research. With 27 teams in attendance, it was hard not to be moved by the energy in the crowd.
Walkers were joined by other members of the community, like nurses and doctors from gold sponsor Presbyterian Medical Center and presenting sponsor, Levine Children's Hospital. After the Walk, participants celebrated their hard work in helping to advance treatment for children fighting cancer.
