September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month

Onward Reserve has to be one of the coolest luxury retailers for prepsters in the city. It was this writer’s first time at the retailer when I attended a fundraiser last week hosted by the baller and his wife. Retired Atlanta Braves pitcher and Hall of Famer Tom Glavine teamed up with Onward Reserve to create a special CURE childhood cancer awareness shirt.

“My involvement with CURE Childhood Cancer began when a child in our son’s school was diagnosed with cancer. My wife and I started out volunteering to help with dinner and other needs. Once we learned more about childhood cancer and the number of kids who are diagnosed with it each year, as well as just how little was being done at the time in terms of funding, we decided to get more involved,” Glavine shared in an op-ed on Huff Post. “My family and I now help promote CURE Childhood Cancer as much as we can.”
