Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis

25 Years of “Chipping Away at Childhood Cancer”

Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance celebrated our 25th Annual “Chipping Away at Childhood Cancer” golf tournament on May 26th at The Ridge Golf Course & Event Center in Auburn. Proceeds from the tournament support our mission of providing emotional, educational, and financial support to children with cancer and their families.

Over 140 golfers, 50 community partners, and 30 volunteers joined efforts in the fight against childhood cancer. The milestone event was a HOLE IN ONE with over $110K raised to fund vital family-centered supportive services for those navigating the complexities of a pediatric cancer diagnosis.
