I have heard many people ask why football players will wear pink during October to raise awareness for breast cancer but they won't wear Gold in September for kids with cancer. Well I have some good news to tell you about the Superbowl this weekend, because every football player WILL be wearing Gold including the hosting team. There are many teams that officially have Gold in their uniforms including my Green Bay Packers, who appear to be yellow, but who are becoming known as those with hearts of Gold for our kids fighting cancer.
When it comes to raising awareness for childhood cancer, we want to see everyone help out, but we can't just depend on celebrities and football teams to do it or us one month each year. We are on a mission to find a cure for childhood cancer and it is going to take all of us, nearly every minute of everyday.
This weekend I challenge you to represent children with cancer at your Superbowl party with something Gold. I am also challenging our running group to a mini map that will take us to the Superbowl during the Virtual Event "Run for the White House for Childhood Cancer"
So don't worry too much about not seeing gold on the outside when watching professional sports because the true support our kids with cancer will receive will be overwhelmingly from those with Hearts of Gold.
