NRFH has partnered up with Go 4 The Goal to “lace up” against childhood cancer. At our Childhood Cancer Awareness Game, we will be honoring Jelien with a ceremony before our game. Jelien is an elementary school student that fought and beat childhood cancer. She rang the bell in March 2021 and ended all of her treatments in April 2021, bravely beating childhood cancer!
All 50 athletes will be partaking in “Lacing Up.” Our program purchased 50 shoelaces fromGo 4 the Goal and the proceeds all go directly to children affected by childhood cancer and their families. We will be reading about Jelien’s story at the ceremony and giving her a T-Shirt!
