Gold bows have been placed on the gates of the Alabama Governor's Mansion in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month which is recognized every September.
Below is an excerpt from the aTeam Ministries page that tells more about the GO GOLD campaign.
September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and as supporters of pediatric cancer families in Alabama aTeam Ministries organizes its annual “GO GOLD!” campaign with three general goals:
Increase public knowledge of pediatric cancer and its symbol, the gold ribbon.
Increase public/community support of pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Provide opportunities for childhood cancer advocacy
aTeam is passionate about helping Alabama families as they journey with this disease and simplistically wanted to show pediatric cancer families that THEY ARE NOT ALONE!
To achieve the goals of the GO COLD! campaign aTeam annually enlists the support of supporters, city and state officials, retailers, businesses, and media outlets to spread the word.
