Join hundreds of childhood cancer groups and thousands of advocates as we share a very powerful Public Service Announcement starting 5/4 at 10 a.m. EDT. We created a U.S. version of a compelling Swedish PSA that went viral last October. The video shows reactions to a PSA that played in Times Square on April 22, 2015. The goal is to help the video reach as many people as possible and encourage the public to “Be a Voice” for kids with cancer.
On Wednesday, 4/22, and Thursday, 4/23, from 7 – 9 p.m. EDT we will be filming reactions to a Childhood Cancer Public Service Announcement featuring Kylie Myers. The location is 1560 Broadway in Times Square. We will meet around 6:30 PM directly in front of the McDonald’s in the island in the middle. (near the statue) While the focus will be on getting reactions from the public, friends from the childhood cancer community are welcome to attend. We will also have a few volunteer opportunities available each night. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Due to the very positive response to the recent childhood cancer research rally at the National Institutes of Health, we will be hosting another rally in 6 weeks. This one will be a Valentine’s Day edition and will be held on Saturday, February 14 at noon. Our goal is to keep building momentum so that we can bring about real, positive change in the way childhood cancer research is funded.
Please mark your calenders for February 14! We hope you will join us in Bethesda, MD. The rally will be near the Medical Center Metro station on the red line. Thank you for being a voice for all children fighting cancer!
