In September, Play For The Kids will take the essence of childhood and unite to play like kids and host a variety of events to keep fundraising. Events range from food competitions to fitness challenges.
Now that the program is up and running, backers can register as part of a team or as an individual participant and start fundraising.
“PlayFor The Kids celebrates the joy of children and shows that children can magically enjoy everything they do,” said Leigh Anna Hilbert, interim director of Community Fundraising Programs at Four Diamonds. “By joining our Play For The Kids community, supporters are committed to the Four Diamonds mission to fight childhood cancer and bring hope to children and families everywhere.”
