The Gold Ribbon is the universal symbol to create awareness of childhood cancer – literally, to ‘shine the light’ on these young patients and their specific and often unmet care and research needs. The Gold September campaign has been initiated by parents, patients, and survivors directly affected by childhood cancer and have become a broadly endorsed initiative with global presence.
Show your commitment to children with cancer by:
- Lighting iconic buildings, historic landmarks, monuments, bridges, and natural environments in Gold
- Decorating these landmarks with Gold Ribbons
- Wearing Gold Ribbon pins at public and media engagements
- other activities marked with the Gold Ribbon and Gold Light symbols
Let us know if you have scheduled any activity related to this event.
