For the month of June, Angela Naeth will be rewarding the top ten fundraisers towards her campaign to combat children’s cancer with a watch from Polar. There will be nine FT4’s watch’s given and the top fundraiser will receive a M400 GPS unit.

Despite the overall rise in survival rates over the last several decades, childhood cancer remains the most common cause of death by disease for children and adolescents in the United States. Approximately 1 in 300 boys and 1 in 333 girls will develop cancer before their 18th birthday. For many forms of childhood cancer, little advancement in prognosis or treatment options has occurred in the past thirty to forty years.

The Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute was created with one aim: to make childhood cancer universally survivable, regardless of diagnosis.

Here’s what you can do:

Head to Angela’s page at and join the team to set up your fundraiser page. Rally your friends and family to give money that will support research in fighting children’s cancer. You will be able to see other contestants amounts raised so that you know where you stand and at the end of June the top 10 fundraisers will receive a watch from Polar.

  • $25 will support one hour of research time for a senior research scientist
  • $50 provides 100 units of DNA synthesizing enzyme
  • $100 amounts to a full day of cell culture supplies for discovery science initiative (the basic supplies necessary to conduct the screening to determine if a drug will be effective as a childhood cancer treatment).
  • $500 equates to three hours of chemiluminescence, (a chemical process to determine if a drug might be effective as a treatment) by cc-TDI’s DNA Imagining machine.

Get started now to help fight childhood cancer and have a chance to win a Polar watch.
