Be a Good Cookie this September

We are kicking off the 3rd Annual 50 State Challenge during September, National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, hundreds of Good Cookies came together in all 50 states to host 450 events to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. September is the month dedicated to raising awareness and funds. Join us as we make a difference for kids. 

The challenge is simple: Host an event in September to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer, the #1 disease killer of kids in America. Not sure where to start? We are here to help you every step of the way. Check out some ideas below or contact us. Ready to get planning? REGISTER TODAY.

Honor a Tough Cookie


Meet Tough Cookie Andrew. Diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma when he was 4 years old, Andrew has been battling the disease for more than 3 years. He has endured more than a dozen rounds of chemotherapy, 5 months of experimental drugs, countless blood transfusions and more. Throughout all of this, Andrew has remained a happy and brave little boy. This week the Garden State Good Cookies are hosting the 2nd annual Andrew’s Cookie Cup, a day of sports, activities, arts & crafts and treats. Host your own event to honor the special Tough Cookie in your life during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Register here.

Get your School Involved


Take inspiration from the Good Cookies in Fort Mill, SC. Daniel is a first grader who battled leukemia and for the past three years, his school has hosted a Hat Day called “Put a Lid on Cancer.” Students get to wear a hat in exchange for making a donation to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. last year, eight schools in the district got involved and thousands of kids came together to Put a Lid on Cancer, raising hundreds of dollars for children’s cancer research. Inspire your school to support Cookies this September. Register here.

Rally your Co-Workers this September


The Good Cookies at Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC Law Offices encouraged their staff to get involved last September with a Jeans Day and Bake Sale. Employees were able to dress down in blue jeans if they made a donation to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This effortless fundraiser was made even sweeter by a bake sale hosted by the staff. They raised thousands of dollars for children’s cancer research. Encourage your company, office, retail store or restaurant to make a difference this September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Register here.

Make your Event Fun & Colorful


Last September, long time Cookies for Kids’ Cancer supporter, Terri organized the 3rd Annual Color Run in Aurora, OH. Students of all ages came together to run a 5K, getting doused from head to tow in a different color at each kilometer while raising much needed funds for childhood cancer research. Whether you host a fun run or 5K or you sign up to participate in a race, get moving to make a difference. Register here.
