Show It

During Childhood Cancer Awareness month in September, we encourage people around the world to take the NEGU Hands Challenge to help raise awareness of childhood cancer. In addition, we ask everyone to encourage their family, friends, and followers to take on the NEGU Hands Challenge too.

Also, we would love for you to show your NEGU spirit by wearing your wristband or any NEGU gear you have. Whether it’s on the field, or off the field, Courageous Kids everywhere are encouraged when they spot that familiar wristband they also receive in JoyJars

We encourage you to post any photos of you wearing any gear on social media and tag us at @teamnegu

Say It

Simply record a “selfie” style video on your phone encouraging kids fighting cancer to NEGU. After you have recoded your short video, email it to Jessie’s daddy, Erik Rees, at erik@jessie.org so we can add it to our iNEGU smart phone app.

Here is a sample script,  “Hi my name is ______________.  I play (insert your position) for (insert your team).  I hear you are a super courageous kid.  I also want to encourage you and your family to NEVER EVER GIVE UP!” 

Deliver It

As an All-Star, you can help personally deliver JoyJars to kids fighting cancer at your local children’s hospital. These incredible visits typically last two hours and give you the opportunity to encourage kids fighting cancer in person.

Hospital visits can take place during the season or during the off season. You can also bring a few teammates with you if they are also interested in getting involved. To learn more please fill out the form below and we will be in touch with more information on how you can join in on our next hospital visit.

Dedicate It

We are honored to have NFL players display “NEGU” on their cleats during the annual My Cause My Cleats campaign.   We also love seeing other athletes display “NEGU” on their baseball gloves, hats and shoes. If you are an NFL player wishing to dedicate your cleats to kids fighting cancer please email Jessie’s daddy, Erik Rees, erik@jessie.org

You can also choose to dedicate a game to a child fighting cancer.  All of these efforts allow kids fighting cancer to know you are on their team. We encourage you to send us a picture or tag us at @teamNEGU if you support in any of these ways!
