Realizing Futures


The Power of One

Never underestimate the power of what you, one person, can do – especially when it comes to fighting pediatric cancer!

At PCRF, we believe one person can truly make a big difference. No matter your age or the means you take to support PCRF, you are empowering hope. Every dollar and penny counts towards the mission to keep pediatric cancer research moving forward. Change for Hope is all about kids helping kids.

The Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County Elementary Schools are uniting together in a united effort to find a cure. This determined group of schools has combined their efforts to raise awareness and money for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, these schools will host a district-wide change drive called Change for Hope – Kids Helping Kids.

Inspired and impacted by the lives of Norah, Ethan, Brady, Meredith and many other brave children who have fought or continue to fight cancer in their community, they decided to take matters into their own hands and do something about it! From September 26 through September 30, students, faculty and parents will empty their pockets of change to make a difference. Donations will also be collected online through our new DIY Fundraiser tool that allows you to put your creative fundraising ideas into action! The school that raises the most money per student will win a shaved ice party for the whole school.

Inspired by many, this one community will touch the lives of children fighting cancer across the country.  When a community joins together, their impact is tremendous.  Thank you for giving hope!
