bring hope and encouragement

Our Pot of Gold program has provided over 700 children, and their siblings, with a moment of encouragement and hope in a long battle with childhood cancer.  It is important to us that we recognize and celebrate our superheroes and we show up big for their courage and be the voice saying, “we are with you”.  This mission has led us to over 100 children hospitals, and we need to reach more.

covid-19 notice

We are mindful of our young heroes fighting cancer, many of whom are immunocompromised and going through difficult treatment. In early 2022, Gold Rush Cure announced that the ubiquitous COVID-19 restrictions would be lifted. However, volunteers working with the Pot of Gold program are asked to:

GRCF always relies on the parents to make the ultimate decision on delivery location and preferences. Volunteers for GRCF will reach out prior to discuss deliveries and allow the parent(s)/guardians to make the best decision for their family.

No GRCF events are currently impacted by COVID-19 and will proceed as scheduled.
