Racing to End Childhood Cancer

You love to compete! Turn your miles into a cure for Childhood Cancer by Racing for GOLD! 

Gold In September (G9) is a national effort to raise awareness and financial support for childhood cancer research and the development of new treatments. Gold (G) and September (9) are the nationally recognized color and month for childhood cancer awareness.


GrowGOLD is not just a mission but a movement of individuals working together to change the future of childhood cancer forever.

G9 raises awareness to fight childhood cancer through growing GOLD. Pediatric cancer not only affects the child, it impacts their families, friends, the community and those who dedicate themselves to caring for those with the disease.

“You can’t win the battle against this awful disease with just the people who are trying to fight it, that’s like trying to win a war with only the wounded.”–Annie Bartosz-G9 Founder
