Diagnosed with leukemia in 1982 at the age of 7,
Tonya (Rhoades) Harris started Clubs to Cure Kids in 2007 to celebrate her 25 years as a childhood cancer survivor. Since then, Tonya and her family have raised over $115,000 to support childhood cancer research and family support programs, including Make-A- Wish Illinois!
Proceeds from the Clubs to Cure Kids Golf Outing have benefited Children's Memorial Hospital, where Tonya was treated for 14 years. The funds supported childhood cancer research studies, the oncology floor playroom, palliative care, and family emergency support programs to financially help families who are facing childhood cancer. Proceeds have also gone to support Make-A-Wish Illinois.
Join Tonya and her family this year as they raise money for Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Make-A-Wish Illinois!
