TeamConnor was founded in 2008 while Connor Cruse of Frisco was in the midst of his four-year battle with neuroblastoma cancer. Connor lost his battle on July 10, 2009, but TeamConnor remains committed to fight for children who are battling cancer.
“Connor loved going to Hawaiian Falls and just being kid,” stated his mother, Joy Cruse, founder of TeamConnor, in a press release. “We are so appreciative of Hawaiian Falls for partnering with us again so we can move the dial on research for childhood cancer.
“Kids should be enjoying their summer vacations, not stuck in a hospital receiving treatment. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of kids battling this horrific disease.”
Hawaiian Falls – The Colony has designated July 10 from 10:30 am – 6 pm as the day to officially Splash Out Childhood Cancer. The special day will be filled with fun games, contests and activities. Several honored families will be at Hawaiian Falls representing kids who are currently fighting childhood cancer, survivors, and even families who lost their child to childhood cancer.
“Supporting TeamConnor is part of our mission to give back to the community while bringing families closer together,” stated Clint Hill, president of Hawaiian Falls. “We host a fun day at The Colony for Splash Out Childhood Cancer, but we also are proud to partner with TeamConnor throughout the entire season to raise funds for more critical research on childhood cancer.”
