Participants who want to join the fight against pediatric cancer can raise additional money to help the cause through fundraising as an individual or by forming a team. Prizes are awarded to the individual or group that raises the most money. Many of the teams formed each year are to honor a local pediatric cancer patient or in memory of a child that has lost the battle to this terrible disease.
