go4thegoal is thrilled and honored to have popchips partnering with us on our new kart 4 kids program, which launches in hospitals across the country this september in honor of pediatric cancer awareness month. the kart will be stocked with toys, gift cards, activities, and delicious, healthier snacks, staring popchips.
patients and their families will be welcome to take their choice of items off the kart that will help make their hospital stay a little more bearable and hopefully provide many hours of entertainment. with a mission to “put the fun back into snacking,” plus all of the delicious flavor and half the fat of fried chips, popchips are a perfect snack ‘pop’ a smile on everyone’s faces!
go4thegoal’s unwavering objective is to help make the lives of children affected by cancer as normal as possible by providing financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs like the kart 4 kids, funding grants for innovative research, and granting personal wishes. funds are raised through both individual donations and our many unique national campaigns, including national dress 4 pediatric cancer day®, lace-up 4 pediatric cancer®, and richard’s runs®.
