The Live Love Serve Foundation is a proud partner of the non-profit organization Cookies for Kids Cancer. Cookies for Kids Cancer is a national organization committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved and less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer, the number one disease killer of children in the U.S.
Larry and Gretchen Witt founded the organization after their 2-year old son Liam was diagnosed with childhood cancer in 2007. As parents of a sick child, they were shocked at how few treatments there were for pediatric cancers due to a lack of funding. As they struggled through their own childhood cancer experience, Larry and Gretchen pledged to support the funding and research for safer and more effective treatments for other children in need. Gretchen mobilized a team of volunteers to bake and sell 96,000 cookies to the community raising more than $400,000 for research in the first go around. This is how Cookies for Kids Cancer was born.
How the Live Love Serve Foundation Partners with Cookies for Kids Cancer
CBI Workplace Solutions and the Live Love Serve Foundation participated in a fundraising event in which Charlotte businesses raised money to support Cookies for Kids Cancer. Not only did many CBI associates attend the event, but CBI and the Live Love Serve Foundation donated a total of $50,000 to the organization. This money will fund research that will benefit more than 40,000 children battling pediatric cancers around the U.S.
