Candlelighters Fun Walk-2023

Amazon Goes Gold

Amazon is so excited to be walking with Candlelighters this year!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and Amazon will "go gold" to support kids with cancer. Throughout the month, Amazonians will come together to raise greater awareness and support the work being done in
cancer research and front-line care. ​

Candlelighters is an organization that provides daily services for childhood cancer families and the Fun Walk raises money for those services and programs which are offered FREE to children with cancer and their families. ​

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 as it costs them $19 per day to park at the Texas Medical Center for treatment.

2. Emotional Support - Childhood cancer families are still restricted when it comes to gatherings, hospital visitation guidelines, school attendance and more. Over the last year it's become even more apparent just how important Candlelighters peer-to-peer support efforts are. Their weekly support group meetings have grown, and Candlelighters Parent Consultants are working around the clock to touch base and check-in with families and their needs.

3. Gas and Grocery Cards - Daily out-of-pocket costs continue to be a financial burden for childhood cancer families and Candlelighters is dedicated to making life easier by providing support to families in these ways. 

4. Memorial Funds - Unfortunately, children are still being diagnosed with cancer and gaining their angel wings. Candlelighters provides financial assistance for families to hold memorial services for their children.

5. Camp CLIFF - Donations will allow Candlelighters to host a safe, life changing experience for our childhood cancer families in February of 2024!


It's fun to do things together! Amazonians are leaders, which means we take action to make a difference in our communities. Global Month of
Volunteering, as well as supporting Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is
the perfect time to do that.

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