CENTER CITY (WPVI) --A movement to crush childhood cancer stepped off at Independence Mall.
It's the Mascots for a Cure 'Lace Up and Twist Away' childhood cancer tour.
Local mascots gathered on the mall to kick it off.
The tour will visit 36 cities to symbolize the 36 kids diagnosed with pediatric cancer every day.
Mascots in those cities will back the cause.
You can donate on the Mascots for a Cure website or at Shoe Carnival stores.
