Sergio's Team

Team Sergio is so excited to be walking for Candlelighters this year! 

The Fun Walk raises money for Candlelighters services and programs which are offered FREE to children with cancer and their families.

Here's how you can help: 

  1. Get inspired – watch this video
  2. Register for the Fun Walk by clicking the blue button at the top of this page that says "Join Team" and partner with me to raise vital funds for Candlelighters and childhood cancer families
  3. Make a donation – even $13 helps by paying for one day of parking for a Candlelighters family!
  4. Share about the Fun Walk with your family and friends and ask that they join you on Walk Day – Saturday, September 9 – and walk with us at Terry Hershey Park, OR wherever you are in Houston, or beyond! We’ll all be walking together!


Here's what Fun Walk donations will be used toward this year:

1. Hospital Parking Assistance - this remains Candlelighters #1 request from childhood cancer families 

2. Emotional Support - childhood cancer families are still restricted when it comes to gatherings, hospital visiting guidelines, school attendace and more, so over the last year it's become even more apparent just how important Candlelighters peer-to-peer support efforts are. Our weekly support group meetings have grown, and Candlelighters Parent Consultants (staff who are also parents of childhood cancer survivors) are working around the clock to touch base and check-in with our families and their needs.

3. Gas Cards & Grocery Cards - traveling into the Texas Medical Center is still a financial burden for some families, support in these ways are always appreciated. 

4. Memorial Funds - cancer hasn't quit unfortunately. Children are still being diagnosed and gaining their angel wings. Candlelighters provides financial assistance for families to hold memorial services for their children.

5. Bell Ringing in a Box when Candlelighters polled their families in 2020, they chose where they would like to see Candlelighters make a new effort for children with cancer, and that is helping them celebrate their end of treatment milestone with celebratory supplies for their bell ringing ceremony! 

7. Camp CLIFF  As always, Fun Walk funds will go towards making this a lifechanging experience for childhood cancer families to make it possible to attend our next Camp Weekend gettaway!

Thank you for supporting my efforts for this amazing organization. Whatever you can give, thank you for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
