TEAM BEADS OF COURAGE
Anyone can participate. Everyone can give. Together we can make the fight a little easier.
Team Beads of Courage is a unique opportunity for supporters to directly give their strength, encouragement and support to a child fighting cancer or other serious illness in hospital. Share and connect your story and celebrate life. By choosing to participate, you are honoring a child’s courage in their fight and giving them hope that they are not alone. Choose to share your life’s journeys; whether it is a new year’s resolution, a life change or a 5k run.
How does it work?
Participants are given a pair of beads to carry with them on their journey. At the end of your journey, you return one bead and a note of encouragement. It is then given to a child in our Beads of Courage Program®when they are in need of extra boost of courage. During a child’s 9 to 12 month hospital stay, they are usually only given one or two of these beads.
