Early in Emily’s treatment, she had the honor of meeting a group of people committed to raising awareness and funding for research and resources for children with cancer. Team Will is a Sacramento-based organization that annually relays across the country – riding 24 hours a day in honor of the 24-hour-a-day fight children with cancer face.
This year, 16 riders and 8 crew members departed from San Francisco, California on June 24th. With at least one rider on the road at all times, they will cross 13 states before the journey ends on July 3rd in Boston, Massachusetts. Along the way, the cyclists will visit 18 hospitals and participate in 7 community rallies with the goal of raising $125,000 for child support services and childhood cancer research.
Groups like Team Will not only bring critical funds to the cause of childhood cancer but often give the even more important gifts of support, hope, and encouragement to the children fighting every hour for a day they will be cancer free.
Thank you Team Will!
