550in50 is a national, community-based initiative to get American kids active in their communities, working alongside The Cure Campaign team. The goal is to have one young adult from every state, fifty youth activists in all, with a project based in their community – whether that be local, regional or state-wide – honing in on cancer research funding. While The Cure team is working to pass federal legislation to increase the National Cancer Research Budget, we want to inspire youth all over the country to get active in their communities! These community service projects can manifest in cancer research pamphlets, volunteer work, fundraising, working with underfunded hospitals, etc. The overall goal of 50in50 is to provide hope to current cancer patients while simultaneously supporting youth advocacy.
