Did you know? September is Childhood Cancer Awareness? While September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, childhood cancer is an everyday reality for thousands of families around the world. With that in mind, we created #MaggiesChallenge - our exciting annual two-week fundraiser, inspired by Maggie Schmidt which helps raise awareness, fundraise to find cures and offers assistance to families affected. Maggie’s Challenge has already been implemented in many schools and can be tailored to fit any schools schedule. Get your leadership clubs involved and get creative! We hope you will join our teams of Angels. Scroll below to watch the video and download the material packet you will need to begin.
Here’s how it works:
1. SPREAD THE WORD! Let your friends and family know you're participating in Maggie's Challenge. Invite them to join in on the challenge or sponsor your participation with a pledge or one time donation.
2. TAKE THE CHALLENGE! Keep track of your challenges as you go on your challenge tracker. Along the way, share pictures of your challenges by using hashtag #MaggiesChallenge on social media or tag us @maggiesmission on Facebook or @maggiegivesback on Instagram. Here are a few challenges you can do: post a selfie making the peace sign; learn a yoga pose; tell someone you love them.
3. SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! Wear your Maggie’s Mission bracelet throughout the challenge to show your support. Plus, wear gold for childhood cancer awareness on the designated day. Together, we can do it! With each challenge and each donation, you'll be raising money to help children with rare cancer.
Are your ready for the Challenge?
