The Heart of Gold program raises awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. If you’re an honor society student looking for a meaningful community service project, this is it! It’s fun, easy to do, and has a real impact. Gain leadership experience and earn community service hours while participating in a movement that makes a difference.
In 2018 we raised enough money to fund a new neuroblastoma clinical trial. We can do even more this year with your help!
Request a FREE Heart of Gold kit using the form on this page and we’ll send you everything you need to participate in the Heart of Gold Program. Your kit will include a t-shirt and bracelet for you, as well as enough paper gold hearts for your everyone doing the Heart of Gold with you. Organize your class year or the entire school!
Your goal is to get your fellow student to decorate a gold heart for pediatric cancer research. They can then ask their family and friends to donate $1 or $2 to sponsor their heart. You can also set up a fundraising page to easily spread the word and keep track of your fundraising efforts. Set a goal on your page and then share it on social media.
Many groups will take a photo to share on the Whip Pediatric Cancer Facebook page and their team page. Feel free to get creative and have fun!
