Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program (KCCP) 2011-2012 Governor’s Project
This year our district’s project is Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program (KCCP). As you probably know, cancer takes thousands of lives every year, many of these lives belonging to kids. As you also probably know, there is no known cure for all cancer. KCCP works with three different children hospitals (Dorenbecher’s, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and British Colombia Children’s Hospital) to assist in cancer research to find the cure. Since the project is obviously so demanding, there is no exact number goal for dollars raised…the goal is as much as possible, so get fund raising! Sell the wristbands (see page ).
"Whenever we contribute to the cure of a child with cancer, Kiwanians are part of it." - H. Stacy Nicholson, M.D., Chairman of the OHSU Department of Pediatrics and Physician-inChief of Doernbecher Children's Hospital
With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating â€” tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million â€” and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the earth.
And in doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.
DCON 2012 WHAT IS DCON? DCON stands for District Convention. DCON is a time where our district joins together to celebrate service, raise money/awareness for our district project, train officers, elect our new executive board, and HAVE FUN. The weekend includes opening/closing sessions, workshops, caucusing/house of delegates, a Governor’s banquet, a dance, among other things! It is a great weekend that you will not regret attending!

WHEN IS DCON AND HOW CAN I GO? DCON 2012 is going to be March 29th - April 1st 2012 at the Double Tree Hotel in SeTac, WA. The total cost is $220. Help with funding can be done through holding club fundraisers and Kiwanis’ help.
