CureSearch supporters gathered in Nashville, TN on a beautiful fall day to celebrate the Inaugural Nashville Walk at the Bicentennial Capital Mall State Park.
Twenty six teams helped raise more than $41,177 for children's cancer research. Top team, Michael's Army raised $15,000 with over 150 team members participating on Sunday.
Guests enjoyed a visit from Blue from Blue's Clues, entertainment by a juggler, kid friendly crafts, and a performance by band Roots of Rebellion, which helped get the crowd in the mood for the Walk.
Walk committee members were proud of the work they did to make the day a success, reflecting on the children that have been lost and knowing that they are working towards a cure, so that no other family has to lose a child to cancer.
Emcee, Jamey Tucker from local ABC affiliate Channel 2 News, kicked off the event with an opening ceremony to name survivors and those in treatment as CureSearch Champions and present them with a CureSearch Walk medal. A moment of silence was also observed recognizing those that have been lost to children's cancer with a balloon release.
At the end of the walk, participants knew that their hard work and dedication would help find cures for children's cancer and further research that is necessary to make a treatment possible and a cure probable.
