Gold Together Champions Campaign for Childhood Cancer

American Cancer Society Childhood Cancer “Gold Together Champions” Campaign

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. By joining the "Gold Together Champions" Campaign to fight back against childhood cancer, you can help the American Cancer Society save lives by raising funds to directly support groundbreaking research, patient care programs, and much more. The color gold, like the precious metal, symbolizes the most precious thing in our lives – our children.

From now through October 12, enroll at to join the American Cancer Society’s childhood cancer initiative in an online virtual community of survivors, volunteers and supporters who believe that the future can be free from childhood cancer. The National Kickoff Call will be on August 30 at 5pm PST, where we will hear from childhood cancer survivors and learn about ways to successfully raise funds. Gold Together Champions spend the month of September raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer efforts. On October 12, we will celebrate and Reveal Our Impact during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month via a Zoom Call at 5pm PST (see online for additional information).

Cancer is the leading disease-related cause of death for children and adolescents age 1-19, with 1 in 260 children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20. Newer, targeted therapy drugs and immunotherapy have made progress with important types of treatment, but some childhood cancers remain with a low survival rate and no cure. The American Cancer Society is currently supporting 44 active childhood cancer research grants for a total of $26 million.
