Shine On! Programs
improves treatment outcome and children’s approach to medical treatment through Japan’s first, full-time Animal Assisted Therapy program at a children’s hospital.
We offer athletes and anyone choosing to embark on a race or journey the opportunity to participate in the very powerful Team Beads of Courage program whereby a very special bead is carried during a race, climb, or other event, then given to a child when they most need a boost of encouragement.
Children fighting cancer receive colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage to commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path. Each bead tells a story of strength, honor and hope.
Calling all marathon runners, triathaloners, swimmers, cyclists, and mountaineers for the Shine On! Challenge! Register yourself as a challenger or pledge our current Shine On! Challengers to SHARE YOUR ENERGY, COURAGE and STRENGTH.
