Kids CAN Reaches Over 3,000 Students 

Three years ago, Gilda's Club South Florida developed Kids CAN: Cancer Awareness Now, an educational program for school aged children. The project, which is currently funded by the United Way of Broward County, has had a milestone school year educating a record number of students.  Throughout the past year, Kids CAN has been presented in over 130 locations, reaching a total of 3,047 students in Broward county. 

The Kids CAN program provides middle and high school age youth in Broward County with important knowledge about cancer awareness, prevention, and supporting a loved one through their cancer journey.   This one hour, dynamic presentation is taught by a registered oncology nurse and Gilda's Program Coordinator Whitney Hawkins. The data collected from students after the presentation demonstrates a remarkable increase in knowledge about cancer prevention, detection, and coping with a diagnosis. 

For more information about Kids CAN or to schedule a presentation at a school, please call 954-763-6776 or email Whitney@gildasclubsouthflorida.org.
Gilda's Young Leadership Council
Gilda's Club Young Leadership Council has been busy this year with several activities to help raise funds and awareness for Gilda's Club.  The group held an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, a networking mixer with Emerge Broward, and has volunteered for community and fundraising events. They also provided a table sponsorship for our Saturday Night Live event, as well as sent 3 participants Over the Edge who raised more than $4,000 collectively.  
The Young Leadership Council is comprised of young professionals dedicated to giving back. Their mission is to make a difference in the lives of those touched by cancer through volunteering, networking, and "fun"raising activities to support the programs of Gilda's Club South Florida.
If you are interested in learning more or joining the Young Leadership Council, please contact Kim Vassar at kim@gildasclubsouthflorida.org   or at 954-763-6776.
