We were honored to be invited to join the Cancer Curesaders at their annual FunFest event in Beaverton, OR. We were joined by the mascots from Menchie’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees, and the Blue Jay. We had fun taking the Chubby Checker Twist Challenge with the participants, staff, and even doctors and researchers from OHSU!
What made this event so special was the variety of events taking place and the wonderful information about childhood cancer that was shared. There was a dove release to represent the children that were lost this year to childhood cancer at OHSU. They had doctors from OHSU and childhood cancer researchers speak about what they do, new developments, and the promise of a future cure for this disease. Child survivors took the stage and were awarded metals for their bravery! There were fire trucks and K9 units for the kids to check out, mascots to take pictures with, and a lot of booths that represented community partners who also share our passion in the fight against childhood cancer. This event was extremely special and is something that Mascots for a Cure plans on being a part of each and every year.
