During September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Dynamo and Dash players raise awareness and money to Kick Childhood Cancer.

Childhood Cancer:

  • Everyday, 36 children are diagnosed with cancer
  • Cancer will claim the life of one out of every five children who is diagnosed with the disease. Across all ages, ethnic groups and socioeconomic statuses, cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in children
  • Three out of five children who survive pediatric cancer suffer late-effects, such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers
