Go Wicked Gold Campaign

Why childhood cancer?  The Board and Officers of Wicked Good Cause were looking to find a way to commemorate the life of past recipient Zachary Kane, a Carver student, who lost his battle to Ewing Sarcoma in September of 2015. It began with the idea for “Light up the Night,” an evening where communities along the South Shore line the roads and driveways of their towns with gold luminary bags in support of those in the community who have been affected by childhood cancer, and to honor those who have lost their battle to the disease. The WGC team quickly realized that roughly three-quarters of the past WGC recipients had been affected by childhood cancer and the campaign began to expand beyond selling luminary bags to include Go Wicked Gold merchandise, school, athletic and community events, aimed at spreading awareness and raising funds for childhood cancer research. September is the nationally recognized month for raising awareness for childhood cancer, and gold is the color associated with childhood cancer - the Go Wicked Gold campaign seeks to paint the South Shore gold throughout the month of September. Many towns have participated, including, Hingham, Rockland, Norwell, Pembroke, Duxbury, Plymouth, Carver, and Abington through their athletics programs, schools, neighborhoods, and local businesses.
