Savannah/South Georgia CURE September Events
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! CURE Childhood Cancer has several events planned for our area. Hope you can join us!
- CURE partners with Memorial Hospital in Savannah for an Ice Cream Social on Thursday, September 7th at 4:00 pm. We will meet at the fountain at the main entrance to the hospital to turn the fountain gold by adding a gold duck in honor of a survivor or in memory of a loved one. You can have your face painted while eating yummy ice cream! Wear your favorite CURE t-shirt or something gold in honor of all children diagnosed with cancer. For more info please contact Mandy@curechildhoodcancer.org.
- Toraya Jai Garvin 5K Walk and Kid’s Party will celebrate September in memory of Toraya Jai Garvin and other children in the community who have battled cancer.

In addition to the Walk, there will be face painting, gold nail painting, music from a DJ and a band, a Be The Match Bone Marrow Drive, a Red Cross Blood Drive and other fun activities.
