The Carry A Bead program is part of Beads of Courage and is a unique opportunity for supporters to directly give their strength, encouragement, and support to a child fighting cancer or another 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 challenges—whether it is a New Year’s resolution, a life change, or a 5K run.
Your Bead will become part of a child’s journey to fight cancer or another serious illness. Watch the video below to learn more about the power of the Beads of Courage Program.
Participants are given a pair of Beads to carry with them on their challenge. At the end of the challenge, participants return one Bead and a note of encouragement. They are then given to a child in our Beads of Courage Program® when they are in need of an extra boost of courage. During a child’s nine- to 12-month hospital stay, they are usually only given one or two of these special Beads.
