About the Event

St. Patrick's Day Walk for Childhood Cancer 

The Julia Cobb - JuCan Foundation 8th Annual "Pleasure Pier BoardWALK" in Galveston, Texas is a fundraising event honoring kids & families who have battled CANcer! The 4.13 mile walk along the beach was created in memory of, 8 year old Julia Cobb, who courageously fought Ewing's sarcoma for two years. During her treatment in Houston, at the MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital, Julia and her family would escape to Galveston to WALK in prayer and in hope for a cure. The 4.13 mile walk honors Julia's favorite scripture, Philippians 4:13. In addition, Julia's birthday is #StPatricksDay and she would have been 18 this year!

The Julia Cobb - JuCan Foundation BoardWALK honors ALL champions who have, or are fighting CANcer. This walk is one of awareness for underfunded childhood cancer, and a fundraiser for the mission & programs of the JuCan Foundation. JuCan's commitment is to standby and support families in the Greater Houston area and beyond during their cancer journey.
