Additional Support & Community Programs
Walk With Sally tries to enhance our youth mentoring support for children and families affected by cancer by offering further assistance through our additional support program. The goal of this community based program is to increase one-on-one and group activities in hopes of moving towards hope and healing. Discover programs, including Hope for the Holidays, Molly’s Corner, Bonus Activities, and the Young Leadership Club.
Each year, Walk With Sally hosts up to six community activities throughout Southern California to expose our friendships to new experiences. Collaborating with other local foundations and community organizations, our mentees and mentors have enjoyed some amazing events, such as, Dodger baseball games, Galaxy soccer games, The Nutcracker performances and Los Angeles Rams football games to name a few.
Hope For The Holidays
Molly’s Corner book collection is distributed to any one who contacts WWS and needs resources on coping with their cancer story. The Molly’s Corner journal will be handed to both the mentor and mentee on the match day. The journals have a special note from WWS staff welcoming them into the Walk With Sally community, along with a tribute to Molly and her story.
The Young Leaders is an enrichment program for older mentees, giving them leadership roles within the Walk With Sally mentoring program and throughout the Southern CA community. This program prepares our mentees for the next chapter. By being a part of Young Leaders, the mentee is a candidate for WWS’s Fred’s Future Young Leaders Scholarship.
