TeamConnor was founded in 2008 while Connor Cruse of Frisco was in the midst of his four-year battle with neuroblastoma cancer. Connor lost his battle on July 10, 2009, but TeamConnor remains committed to fight for children who are battling cancer.
“Connor loved going to Hawaiian Falls and just being kid,” said Joy Cruse, founder of TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation and mother of Connor. “We are so appreciative of Hawaiian Falls for partnering with us again so we can move the dial on research for childhood cancer. Kids should be enjoying their summer vacations, not stuck in a hospital receiving treatment. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of kids battling this horrific disease.”
Hawaiian Falls - The Colony has designated July 10, 2017 from 10:30 am – 6 pm as the day to officially Splash Out Childhood Cancer. The special day will be filled with fun games, contests and activities. Several honored families will be at Hawaiian Falls representing kids who are currently fighting childhood cancer, survivors, and even families who lost their child to childhood cancer.
"Supporting TeamConnor is part of our mission to give back to the community while bringing families closer together,” said Clint Hill, president of Hawaiian Falls. “We host a fun day at The Colony for Splash Out Childhood Cancer but we also are proud to partner with TeamConnor throughout the entire season to raise funds for more critical research on childhood cancer.”
In addition to Splash Out Childhood Cancer, TeamConnor hosts several other events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research, including, 6thAnnual National Childhood Cancer Awareness Concert at Watters Creek; September 16th. Color Me Green 5K/10K; October 7th, and 7th Annual Northwestern Mutual Clay Shoot; November 2nd. TeamConnor’s Coins for Kids with Cancer® program raises funds in schools, churches, offices and organizations across the country to help fund childhood cancer research. Details on events and Coins for Kids with Cancer can be found at teamconnor.org.
Every year, more than 12,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children, yet the budget of the National Cancer Institute allocates less than four percent of its funds to pediatric cancer research. TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funding research and treatment programs to find a cure for all childhood cancers.
