Childhood Health and Wellness

Finding a cure to Childhood Cancer is a major effort funded by Optimist International. Centerville Noon Optimists provide annual funding to the Dayton Children Medical Center Oncology/Hematology department with proceeds from our Annual Tee Off for Youth Golf Classic. We also host and fund an annual Build-a-Bear event for cancer stricken kids and their siblings. We provide caregiver breakfasts for Dayton Children Medical Center Oncology/Hematology department as well.

The Centerville Noon Optimist Club has expanded our Childhood Health & Wellness Program beyond Childhood Cancer. We have initiated projects and services to improve the quality of life for children in their communities across a broader spectrum of needs.

Childhood Health & Wellness will include four focus areas:

  • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Chronic Diseases
  • Mental Health
  • Disabilities – Physical, Intellectual & Developmental
