Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

In a continuing effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, Covenant Health and University Medical Center are joining together for the Lubbock Pediatric Cancer Walk on Saturday, September 29 from 9 am to noon at Buddy Holly Park in Lubbock, TX. The walk will benefit childhood cancer research through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), during their Childhood Cancer Awareness Month campaign: The Million Mile.

As part of the medical student's Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Oncology Interest Group initiative, medical students will be participating in The Million Mile and helping to fundraise for the Cancer Center lab. All donations made to the Cellbusters 2018 Million Mile team will be matched by ALSF and earmarked to directly support childhood cancer research in the Cancer Center Lab.

They hope to raise over $8,770, last year’s total raised. For more information about the walk, contact Sally Mendoza at 806-725-8367 or smendoza@covhs.org.

ALSF challenges people everywhere to go the extra mile in September during The Million Mile, presented by Volvo. Returning for its sixth year during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (September), participants turn awareness into action by collectively running, walking and/or cycling a million miles to raise funds for childhood cancer research. The Million Mile is the largest Childhood Cancer Awareness Month challenge that funds researchers so they can find better treatments and more cures for kids battling cancer.
