I have been interning with Kids Beating Cancer for about 3 months and I must say I love how much work this organization puts towards their kids. Nothing but hard work and time goes into this organization and I truly see the dedication in every single member of this organization. From a 5k run in Mount Dora to the Hats and Heroes Ball, this organization works hard to raise money for the children in need.
As a new participant of non profit organization involvement I (on the left) have found great joy in the makings and efforts of Kids Beating Cancer. Their close knit professional family atmosphere expresses an amazing sense of active dedication in the lives of the children they wish to honor and support. I have played a hands on role along side their driven staff and can truly see and feel the essence of love they pour out to the countless lives they strive to compassionately improve. Kids Beating Cancer exemplifies the primary focus of a nonprofit organizations. They whole heartedly elevate the wellbeing of their recipients through beneficial resources and reinforced valued care systems.
