Active 20-30 Sacramento Club #1 will be hosting their annual “Active 20-30 Holiday Party for Children Fighting Cancer”. The goal of this party is to bring holiday cheer to these children who may not be able to leave the hospital or possibly even their rooms, due to their health.
The Active 20-30 Holiday Party is a tradition that it’s members look forward to every year. This year’s party will benefit over 300 children. Active 20-30 recognizes the challenges these children fighting cancer, face on a daily basis. This added to the potential stress the holiday season can impose on the children and their families is part of the reason for Active 20-30 hosting this party. Sadly some of the children may not have many more Christmas seasons to celebrate with their families. Active 20-30 tries every year to make this a memorable event for the children and their families to enjoy for years to come.
While some of the children in the pediatric oncology wing of U.C. Davis Medical Center are able to come and enjoy the party held specifically for them there are those who cannot leave their rooms, or possibly beds. Active 20-30 looks forward to bringing a little holiday cheer to all of these children with food, gifts, entertainment, and a special visit from Santa.
"A man never stands so tall as when he kneels to help a child", this is the slogan for Active 20-30 Sacramento Club #1. Those words are truly understood by Club #1 members when they are involved in events like the “Active 20-30 Holiday Party for Children Fighting Cancer”. The impact that Active 20-30 members have on the children in their communities is often unrecognized by the general public. That said, it should be made clear that Active 20-30 is a service organization, which does not seek validation or acclaim. However acknowledgment and endorsement by the general public would be welcome, and could aid Active 20-30 with it’s mission of improving the quality of life for the special needs of children in our communities.
The impact that the children have on the members of Active 20-30 Sacramento Club #1 is monumental. When a child goes up to an Active 20-30 member to give them a hug and say, "thank you" it is a reward that words could not truly express. However, that member knows that he helped a child in a unique way on that day.
Active 20-30 is a club with the objective of serving the community, while building lasting friendships and rendering service to youth.
