;The Turn It Gold fund has one
simple goal: to enable a cure for childhood cancer.
The fund was founded by Mike and Angela Dina of Houston Texas, who's son Charlie was diagnosed with stage-4
neuroblastoma at the age of four. The Dinas established this 501c(3) non-profit organization to advocate for greater
prioritization of childhood cancer research, and to support all families and children battling pediatric cancer. For more information
visit TurnItGold.org or check them out on Facebook.
The Ohio Bobcats have joined the fight! They will dedicate their October 21st football game to this
worthy cause. You can join the fight too, and show your support for the Bobcats, by purchasing the official
Go Gold Game tee shirt online here, or at College Book Store in uptown Athens. The Ohio University Scripps College of Communication is producing a feature-length documentary film
entitled Going Gold which will detail the journey of the Dina Family as well as the various
efforts - locally and throughout the country - to support this fund. Watch for the release of Going Gold on
PBS stations in the fall of 2017. For more information or to support the project, please contact Dr. Lynn Harter
via the Scripps College of Communication's Storytelling Institute.
