New Nationwide Event Takes a Swing “Fore” Raising Money for Childhood Cancer, Sept. 28, 2023

TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation Announces New Fundraising Event, “Swing Fore Childhood Cancer” presented by Northwestern Mutual

DALLAS , Aug. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation is excited to announce a new nationwide event, “Swing Fore Childhood Cancer,” presented by Northwestern Mutual on Thursday, Sept. 28, 2023 from 4 pm6 pm. Hosted during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the fundraiser will be held at Topgolf and Suite Shots locations across the U.S., including California, Louisiana, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas. Registration is now open to the public in all markets.

“The goal of “Swing Fore Kids Childhood Cancer is to further spread awareness of our mission,” said Tait Cruse, managing partner of Northwestern Mutual’s Dallas locations, co-founder of TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation and father to Connor Cruise. “This event will raise much-needed funds to expand important pediatric cancer research and childhood cancer clinical trials. The money raised in each market will benefit the local children’s hospital in that market.”

According to The National Children’s Cancer Society, childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the United States. Each year in the U.S., an estimated 15,780 children aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer – that’s a staggering 43 kids (families) per day being told they have cancer, yet less than 4% of the federal government’s budget for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers.

The TeamConnor Story 
TeamConnor was founded in 2008 by Connor’s parents, Joy and Tait Cruse. Connor was a rambunctious four-year-old boy when he was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma on May 15, 2005. Connor fought a fierce, four-year battle that included more than 200 nights in the hospital, 14 surgeries, 40 blood transfusions, 25 rounds of chemo, 2 bone marrow transplants, and countless painful procedures. He was a fighter to the very end. His motto was, “Be brave and believe in Jesus.” Since 2008, TeamConnor has donated almost $5 million to numerous hospitals across the country in its mission to fund improved treatment options and ultimately cures for childhood cancers.
