In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month during September, students at West End Elementary School participated in the Solving Kids’ Cancer campaign “Lace Up For Kids.” To help raise awareness, Solving Kids’ Cancer, an organization that according to their website, “finds, funds and advocates for breakthrough treatment options to cure children with the most fatal pediatric cancers,” asked supporters to swap out their shoelaces with gold laces and share their photos on social media. With the color gold representing the month, the laces help raise awareness to support children battling cancer.

West End students and their families have made it their mission to raise awareness and donate to Solving Kids’ Cancer. With their support, the school recently received 500 pairs of gold shoelaces, generously donated by the organization. Students wore their laces at school and together, continued to raise money during the month toward this important cause.
