At Gexa Energy, we believe that supporting our community goes beyond providing electrical power. It’s about empowering the voices that matter and shining a light on causes that touch our hearts. One such cause is the fight against childhood cancer—a battle that no child or family should face alone. This is why we are immensely proud of our partnership with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation Family Alliance.

Gexa Energy Stands with Candlelighters in the Fight Against Childhood Cancer

On Saturday, September 9, 2023, the Candlelighters held their annual Fun Walk in Houston, Texas. This fundraising fun walk event is where families, friends, and companies come together to support the cause.

The Beacon of Hope: Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation Family Alliance

The Candlelighters is not just another charity organization; it’s a beacon of hope for families struggling with the emotional, educational, and financial challenges of a childhood cancer diagnosis. Their mission is to alleviate some of the burdens these families face, ensuring they never feel isolated on their journey.

By offering free support, Candlelighters ensures that families are equipped with essential resources to navigate their way through the most challenging times. With Parent Consultants stationed at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, families have direct access to professionals who understand their struggle.

The Fun Walk: Walking Hand in Hand with Cancer Warriors

One of the many incredible initiatives by Candlelighters is the Fun Walk. This signature event is not just about raising funds but also about raising awareness for childhood cancer and the challenges affected families face. The streets of Houston come alive as thousands gather together, creating a sea of hope, love, and solidarity.

What’s truly special about the Fun Walk is the sense of unity it fosters. It’s not just a fundraiser—it’s a movement. Participants get a firsthand experience of Candlelighters’ mission, walking side by side with the brave families and their little warriors, sending a powerful message: You are not alone!

Gexa Energy’s Commitment

Our partnership with Candlelighters is one of the ways we try to give back to the community that means so much to us. We are committed not just in words but in action. Through financial support and events like the Fun Walk, Gexa Energy aims to reinforce the incredible work Candlelighters is doing.

But our passion for this urgent cause can’t stop there. We encourage our customers, employees, and the broader community to get involved. Whether by participating in the Fun Walk, volunteering, or donating—even the smallest effort can make a huge difference.

Childhood cancer is a battle no one should face alone. At Gexa Energy, we are honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation Family Alliance, offering our unwavering support. Together, we hope to bring light to the darkest times and ensure that every family affected by childhood cancer feels loved, supported, and empowered.
