Megan Savage Memorial Run/Walk for a Cure
September 28, 2019
Join us for the Megan Savage Memorial Run/Walk for a Cure for childhood cancer awareness walk benefiting children with cancer at our 14th Annual 5K and 1K Race! Pediatric Family Teams, Schools, Fitness Gyms, Businesses, Clubs and Organizations get your teams together to make a positive impact in 2019!
Megan’s Wings was founded in January 2005 in memory of 9 yr old Megan Savage who lost her Leukemia battle on April 2nd, 2003. During Megan’s 2 1/2 yr struggle with cancer, the Savage family met other families struggling to cope financially and emotionally. It’s often necessary for a parent to cut back hours at work or one parent quit work to care for their sick child. Money eventually runs short to pay the bills & expenses increase such as gas expense for numerous appointments and hospital stays, phone calls to family, meals away from home, increased medical bills. Treatment often stretches into years with relapse, making it difficult to recover financially, even with savings. It is our wish to help ease the financial burden and foster hope through caring so families can concentrate on their sick child.
Megan’s Wings is a non-profit volunteer based foundation established in memory of 9 year old Megan Savage who lost her battle to Leukemia on April 2nd, 2003. Megan’s Wings provides help and services to families of children with cancer. It is our wish to ease the burdens of cancer on families and aid in the search for a cure.
