The entire month of September will see the WWE ‘GO Gold for Connor’s Cure’ to fight pediatric cancer.
If you are a regular viewer of WWE programming – this past year you were introduced to a young 8-year old named Connor Michalek. Connor was diagnosed with a brain tumor that affected the brain and spinal cord. Connor was a huge WWE fan – after attending a WWE live event, Connor found himself backstage meeting all the superstars of the WWE. One superstar in particular was Connor’s favorite, that superstar was Daniel Bryan. It was true friendship at first sight.
Connor Michalek lost his battle to cancer on April 25, 2014. With only spending a short time with the WWE, Connor left a huge impression on the entire corporation. After his passing, Paul Levesque (Triple H) and Stephanie McMahon founded ‘Connor’s Cure’, a charity to support brain tumor research.
On March 28, 2015, Connor Michalek was inducted into the historical WWE Hall of Fame and awarded the Warrior Award.
This month, to raise awareness for pediatric cancer, WWE is asking Twitter users to “go gold. With that, every time a user updates their Twitter profile, the WWE will contribute $1 to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation to benefit Connor’s Cure.
