July 2021 Newsletter
Hike for Mike is back! Join us Sunday, October 17 from 1-5 p.m. at Palmetto Islands County Park for a day filled with outdoor family fun! The day will include trails to hike and walk, a Lowcountry food truck, children's tent with arts and crafts, mindfulness activities, and more. We will also have a silent auction featuring some awesome items.
Can’t make it in person? We will also have a virtual option, so you can participate from wherever you are. Visit one of your favorite trails, take your kids on a nature walk or maybe just walk around your neighborhood!
We can't wait to hike with you!

Results Are In: Kendra Scott Giveback Event
The Kendra Scott GiveBack event on July 11 was a success, raising over $400! We could not have done it without Kendra Scott's generosity and support.
Thank you to everyone who came out to sip & shop or made purchases online. And a big thank you to our volunteers and everyone else who helped contribute to make the day a success!
Be sure to be on the lookout for our next fundraiser. We are grateful to have partnerships with local businesses that support us in this way!
Someone in my Family Has Cancer - A Video for Kids
Families, we suggest you watch this video prior to showing it to your children so that you are ready to answer their questions afterwards!
After showing this video, allow time within the week for your kids to ask questions about your diagnosis and treatment plan. They may not be ready to ask questions right away. That is totally normal.
It is important to be open and honest with your children and to provide them with concrete answers. This allows you to address any misconceptions they may have about their family member’s cancer diagnosis. Make sure to highlight that cancer is not something that they caused and it is not something that they can catch by touching or being around their loved one, especially for those ages 5-11.
