337 lights for 337 kids

We're on a mission to light up 337 buildings and homes in gold during September's National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, starting with the Governor's Executive Mansion, to represent and bring attention to the 337 children across the state who are diagnosed with cancer each year - but we need your help!

Join the movement in Virginia to go gold to raise awareness for kids with cancer this September.

Childhood cancer isn't that uncommon in Virginia, and kids need our help. Here's why:

0%

of that budget is dedicated to support children with cancer.

Virginia can do better.

We need to show Virginia's leaders how important funding for childhood cancer is to our community so they bring about real legislative change.

Getting involved is as easy as changing a light bulb. 

We've already done the testing to find the boldest and goldest bulb around. Buy your bulb now so you're ready to change your white light to gold on September 1!
