Children’s Minnesota cares for more than 70 percent of kids battling cancer in the Twin Cities and the Cancer Kids Fund provides care, comfort and research to ease the journey for families facing a diagnosis. At STALYON we want to use our new platform & home at REI as a positive opportunity for our brand & outdoor community to give back, and locally towards making a high-impact on the lives of those kids in need of our support. During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in Minnesota, STALYON is proud to be a part of the Shine Bright for Cancer Kids campaign, an annual fundraiser for its Cancer Kids Fund at Children’s Minnesota.
HOW TO SUPPORT:
In support of CHILDREN’S MINNESOTA Hospital ; With every STALYON purchase from REI – Mall of America flagship location (or online to any Minnesota address), YOU give with your purchase power towards the SHINE BRIGHT - CANCER KIDS FUND.
“The Shine Bright for Cancer Kids campaign is a time for us to join together and support local kids facing these difficult diagnoses,” said Myndy Livingston, pediatric nurse practitioner. “Children’s Minnesota provides both the very best medical care for our kids as well as offers a myriad of other services that are essential to supporting families during their cancer journeys. This is only made possible thanks to our generous partners and donors.”
This September we encourage the STALYON community to join us in making a difference in the lives of kids right here at home by supporting businesses that are part of this inspiring campaign or donating directly to Children’s Minnesota.
