About Our Campaign
Oklahoma Christian University students want Oklahomans to come together to do more to fight childhood cancer. For the next month, students across campus are highlighting the need for more funding and research in childhood cancer treatments.
Partnering with the national nonprofit, With Purpose, OC students are promoting their campaign with the Public Relations Student Society Of America Bateman’s case study competition. The OC campaign is directed by Eagle PR, a student-led public relations firm, and works with nonprofits such as the Toby Keith Foundation, Eagles Health Initiative and the Brave, Bald and Beautiful group to bring awareness to childhood cancer.
OC students invite those around Oklahoma City to join in the campaign. Students have spent three days at two locations inviting people to write encouragement cards to children fighting cancer. The students visited Putnam City North High School, OC and Oklahoma Christian Academy. The cards will be delivered to patients at OU Children’s Hospital and Bethany Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital. A representative from the Toby Keith Foundation will speak to about 800 OC students on March 13 to encourage them to support children fighting cancer. OC students are also collaborating on events with Eagles Health Initiative, an organization dedicated to improving overall health in the community.
