Each day, more than 250 children lose their battle with cancer. It is the #1 cause of death by disease in children. Yet, all pediatric cancers combined receive less than 4% of federal funding for cancer research.
That is why CBS 11 is partnering with the North Texas Business Alliance and Southwest Kia for the second annual Pulling Together a Texas-sized tug-of-war to fight pediatric cancer.
New Country 96.3, and teams from across Dallas-Fort Worth will face off in this epic battle, each raising at least $10,000 in donations for Children’s Cancer Fund.
HOW CAN I HELP?
