Elon Football Partnering with KidsCan! and ARMC

ELON, N.C. – The Elon University football program is partnering with the Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation to raise awareness and money for the KidsCan! program that assists children who have a parent with cancer. All funds raised by the Phoenix team through online donations will be used to support the KidsCan! program at the Alamance Regional Medical Center campus.

The KidsCan! program is an educational and peer empathy program for families in which a parent has cancer. This program was started by former NFL players Torry and Terrence Holt, whose mother had cancer. At monthly family dinners, facilitators help kids understand the disease and treatments. They also provide emotional support through activities, arts and crafts, group discussion and music. The program, geared for children aged 6 to 16, is led by professionals within their field of expertise, including activities that make it easy for kids and parents to understand both physically and emotionally. At the Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional, children of any patient are eligible for the KidsCan! program, regardless of where the patient receives cancer treatment. It is free of charge. For more information, or to attend a meeting, parents can call 336-586-3510.

To support this cause, each Elon football player has a link at the program’s donation page. To donate to a specific player’s goal, click their name on the leaderboard. You will be directed to that player’s page and can make a donation there.

Fans can also support this cause by purchasing tickets to the Phoenix’s November 7 home date with William & Mary. Terrence Holt is scheduled to be in attendance at the game and there will be some surprise community advocates partnering with the Elon dance team for entertainment.
