Courageous Kids Day

The America Cancer Society event offers kids a “day away from cancer.”

Founded in 1989 by Gay Crawford, Courageous Kids Day raises funds for pediatric cancer and offers over 600 young patients in California a day of fun. The American Cancer Society in Partnership with California’s Great America holds the event annually on Mother’s Day. It’s an extra-special, activity-packed day for the courageous kids and their families, allowing them to forget some of their stress and have fun together; a day of enjoying amusement rides, a picnic lunch, arts and crafts, family portraits, photographs with local celebrities, and more. Thank you to the American Cancer Society staff, volunteers, and event co-chairs.
