Our first walk took place in Oct. 2009, the month and year that Alex Green was diagnosed at the age of 5 with Stage IV Wilm’s Tumor. This first walk was not about raising money or awareness but rather was therapeutic for the family and friends involved. The sole purpose was to get together in support of Alex and family to share and express support, strength, love and faith.
Since that first walk, we vowed to hold this evergrowing event annually as a way to raise awareness to the lack of funding for Pediatric Cancer Research and to give back to the organizations that are out there making a difference in the lives of families battling Pediatric Cancer. In 2014 we announced the launch of Alex's Army Childhood Cancer Foundation. Our mission is to provide Christian focused support to children and famillies battling Pediatric Cancer while raising awareness and funding for research.
We are an Army for ALL kids who have fought, who are fighting, and who ever will fight Childhood Cancer!
