Did you know that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month? That’s right, Smarties, so join us in the first-ever “30 Days for a Cure” and help raise some much-needed dough for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in honor of ‘lil Smarty Warrior, Grier Christenbury, and all of the little warriors just like him.
Grier Christenbury is a 6-year-old in our community who has been battling Neuroblastoma since the age of 2½ years old. Grier’s Smarty Mom, Amy Christenbury, (read Amy’s 2008 Smarty Mom profile here) has joined forces with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for pediatric cancer research, and is bringing us “30 Days for a Cure” where 100% of the proceeds will be dedicated to pediatric cancer research.
For the entire month of September, 30 local businesses will be donating a portion of their proceeds for one given day of the month to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Every single day, a super cool Charlotte hotspot will be featured for the day. Today is Smoothie King on East Blvd, tomorrow is T. Reid & Co on East Blvd, Thursday is Chick-fil-A on Woodlawn, Friday is Qdoba on Woodlawn, Saturday is Alphabet Soup in Morrocroft Village. You get the idea – all of your favorite digs will help this great cause for the entire month. Click here to get the line-up for the month.
Smarties, you should be proud to be a part of this incredible city! When we all rally together, we can move mountains! A big Smarty congrats goes out to these fabulous local businesses who are making a big difference in children and their families who really, really need it.
