To date, Cavaliers Against Cancer has raised over $100,000 for the Rebecca Clary Harris, M.D. Memorial Fellowship. Under the direction of Dr. Craig Slingluff, this fellowship supports ground-breaking work in cancer immunology and immunotherapy.
The inaugural Hoos Care Kids Fair was held at the John Paul Jones Arena on September 17th from 1-5PM. This family-friendly community engagement and awareness event was co-hosted by Hoos Care and the UVA Children’s Hospital Committee. Free to the public, it featured inflatable obstacle courses and slides, face painting, balloon animal artists, a scavenger hunt, and other traditional carnival activities. A main stage area highlighted various local entertainers including a magician, a juggler, dance routines, musical performances, martial arts, kids Zumba, and more. Finally, doctors from the UVA Children’s Hospital were on hand to display and discuss the ground-breaking research happening in our own backyard. The world-renowned work being done in here not only saves the lives of our children in Charlottesville and Virginia, but positively impacts life-saving treatments across the globe.
