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 at the beginning of their battle with pediatric cancer.
Since that first walk, we vowed to hold this 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. This year, we are incredibly proud and excited to announce the startup of Alex's Army Childhood Cancer Foundation! Alex's Army is not just about 1 child's fight with Pediatric Cancer, we are an army for ALL kids who have fought, who are fighting, and who ever will fight Childhood Cancer!
EARLY REGISTRATION: July 24 through August 18 **Please note we can only guarantee tshirt availability for early registrants.
LATE REGISTRATION: August 19 though September 2 **We will have extra tshirts onsite however size availability cannot be guaranteed for late registrants.
