The Kick Sarcoma Campaign is a dedicated fund raising effort sponsored by the Sarah Grace Sarcoma Foundation to fund grants for the support of Sarcoma research and raise community awareness of these deadly cancers. The Kick Sarcoma Campaign encourages community involvement through the sale of Kick Sarcoma shoe laces.
Ellie Cole - (Australian Paralympian, silver medallist in the Women’s 100 m Butterfly, and cancer survivor)- is the Campaign Patron and a dedicated supporter of sarcoma research.
Go for the Gold! Ellie will proudly wear the Kick Sarcoma laces at the 2012 Paralympics in London. Her story of surviving sarcoma and triumphing over the physical challenges posed by this devastating disease inspires us all to Kick Sarcoma!
Community Involvement is key! From Olympic athletes to local sports clubs, the Kick Sarcoma Campaign is dependent on your involvement for success! The Kick Sarcoma Campaign will supply the literature and advertising material to help you get your sports team, coffee club, church group, or colleagues involved in spreading awareness and raising funds for research.
As sarcomas have a disproportionate effect on children and young people, the Kick Sarcoma Campaign has a youth ambassador program to encourage involvement and awareness among our youth. By encouraging their sports teams and school groups to purchase and wear Kick Sarcoma laces, young adults qualify as Youth Ambassadors and are eligible for community service credit for the work involved.
