STEP-BY-STEP-TEMBRE is a family-oriented virtual walk from September 1 to 30. Participants promote September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and raise funds to purchase priority medical equipment for the Pediatric Oncology Program at McMaster Children’s Hospital.

In recognition of the fact that approximately 300,000 children and adolescents around the world are diagnosed with cancer each year, September has been designated as the month for raising awareness of childhood cancer and funds for treatment and research. Supporters often wear a gold ribbon — the colour associated with childhood cancers.

Go for the Gold! Wear a gold ribbon, spread the word and raise funds to support children with cancer in our community.
