Our Heroes

the 5th annual Kids Runway for Research

September is Childhood Cancer awareness month & there aren't nearly enough days in the month to properly honor all of the kids who have been affected by cancer.  The wonderful folks from Kids Runway for Research, however, do a great job every September of putting together a truly amazing event that not only raises awareness of the prevelance of childhood cancer, but also raises funds for much needed research, and most importantly, gives amazing local childhood cancer survivors a chance to shine!  

 

We've been really honored to dress models for the last four years & today's show was no exception.  Please take a moment to honor the heroes we dressed in the pictures below.....they're truly amazing kids!  

 

Did you know......

*720 children aroundd the world are diagnosed with cancer everyday

*250 children around the world die from cancer everyday

*2/3 of children will have long-term & chronic effects from their treatments

*the causes of childhood cancer are mostly unknown 

*less than 5% of federal funds devoted to cancer research are used to study pediatric cancer 

 

Kids Runway helps support the efforts of the pediatric oncology department at Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders as they work to find cures and improve the quality of life for kids undergoing treatment.  If you'd like to donate to this amazing cause, click here!

    Paige and Gail : Your continued participation in the event is very much appreciated. The kids love their outfits from Lilypad. So glad Paige could be at the event to see the kids in person as well as the great clothing that your store provided! Hope to see Lilypad again next year. We will be bringing a certificate of recognition to the store this weekend for your continued support. Thanks for making a difference.
