Cancer affects everyone. But when it affects kids, we have to make sure their peers are here to support them. We all have the power to do something about it. By starting an official Shred Kids Cancer Club at your school, you can join the Shred Kids Cancer movement and help save lives now. It’s up to you.
What is a Shred Kids Cancer Club?
A Shred Kids Cancer Club is a school-based club created and led by students who are dedicated to stopping kids’ cancer and inspired to act now. A club allows you to create your own unique activities in support of Shred Kids Cancer, gives you valuable leadership experience and enables you to make an impact in your community.
