Atlanta United’s Unite & Conquer Cancer campaign’s mission is to give a voice to children and young adults that are fighting or have survived their battle with cancer. In addition, this campaign will provide a platform to recognize the great work Atlanta’s hospitals, organizations, and non-profits are doing to make strides in pediatric cancer research while providing excellent care to children that are suffering with cancer or terminal illness. The Unite & Conquer Cancer campaign stems from MLS WORKS’ annual Kick Childhood Cancer (KCC) initiative to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. UNITE & CONQUER CANCER –BE BOLD, GO GOLD will be a month-long platform for the club, with awareness efforts in-game, in the community, and through our social presence.
