The gold ribbon is the national symbol for childhood cancer and September is “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.” In an effort to spread awareness and ignite advocacy, NNCCF kicks off the Know the Gold campaign every September 1st.  Businesses, individuals, and schools join together in support of local children with cancer by raising funds and awareness. The campaign wraps up every January with a grand finale radiothon.
