The mission of Cure Kids Cancer is to help children's cancer centers, like the one at Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, find life-saving treatments and eventually cures for children's cancer by raising money and awareness. Cure Kids Cancer is a program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“Cure Kids Cancer is a special organization to our fraternity. We are helping local kids battling for their lives,” said Robert McCauley, of Primghar, Iowa, a third-year nursing major and Pi Kappa Alpha’s vice president of external affairs.
