Why This Challenge Matters

Dollars raised through Go Gold for Norton Children's Cancer Institute will support children who are receiving treatment for pediatric cancer or blood disorders at Norton Children’s Hospital and the outpatient clinic at the Novak Center for Children's Health. 

Norton Children’s Cancer Institute is the premier pediatric cancer care program in Kentucky. They serve patients in almost every county in the state. The Institute combines the resources of the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Norton Children’s Hospital, the outpatient clinic at the Novak Center for Children's Health, the Norton Children’s Infusion Center and the UofL School of Medicine.  

Dollars raised will help fund facilities, equipment, staff, patient and family financial assistance, research and Child Life/pastoral care and direct programming through the Norton Children's Hospital Foundation. It takes the generosity of everyone in the community to enable Norton Children’s to be here to help children and their families when they need it the most.
