Did you know childhood cancer awareness month is September? This month was declared as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in 2012, and the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) encourages everyone to wear gold for the kids – all the survivors, the victims, as well as those who are still fighting the disease.

In 2014, Achieve Equine debuted a “For the Kids” Gold FLAIR® Strip that 2xNFR Barrel Racer Nancy Hunter championed to bring more awareness to Childhood Cancer. Nancy had a very special place in her heart for Childhood Cancer, as her son’s battled cancer at a young age and fortunately won the fight. However, on March 12, 2017, Nancy passed away after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. We continue to honor Nancy’s legacy with a Limited Edition Golden “Kick Childhood Cancer” FLAIR Strip.

The Kick Childhood Cancer Strip is designed to acknowledge and support the toughness with which kids diagnosed with cancer and their families face. The gold color in honor of awareness for Childhood Cancer shines a light on this cause to which Achieve Equine donates 30% of each sale to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude’s mission is “to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay.”

For those that want to wear even more gold in honor of this important cause, Achieve Equine is again offering a special Kick Childhood Cancer Bundle Pack while supplies last. The bundle pack includes: two gold Kick Childhood Cancer FLAIR Strips, one gold (”wattle yellow”) jump cut Iconic Equestrian™ Saddle Pad, and one gold VIP™ Original Half Pad. A great value for those that want to support childhood cancer awareness and research, this Bundle Pack is an incredible offer priced at $250 (a $320 retail value). Achieve Equine is donating 30% of the proceeds to St. Jude’s. Details on the Kick Childhood Cancer Bundle Pack are available at
