Carson’s Crusaders Paints the Town Gold – September 2013

Carson’s Crusaders again distributed a number of posters to pediatric offices, preschools and local businesses to bring awareness of September being designated as Childhood Cancer Awareness month. The posters carry the theme Paint the Town Gold (the color of the childhood cancer ribbon) and provide vital information about potential symptoms of cancer.

This is the second year of providing this community service. The foundation continues to expand on this theme and the goal of painting our towns gold for the month of September to raise awareness and support. Learn more about Pediatric Cancer!
