      Curing Kids Cancer Fire Truck Pull - April 8

      All money raised will go directly to Curing Kids Cancer.

       Please help us support Mrs. Campbell and Nicholas while we raise money for Curing Kids Cancer.

      This is our fourth year participating in a fundraiser with Curing Kids Cancer and we will pull a Fire Truck on April 8th.  We are collecting money for Curing Kids Cancer and all money raised will benefit the Cancer and Blood Disorders Clinic at Palmetto Children’s Hospital (PCH).  Many children, just like Nicholas, receive their treatment in Columbia and will benefit directly from this money through research and development at PCH.  Nicholas received his final treatment October 2016 at PCH. He is doing great and celebrated his graduation from treatment with a class pizza party!
