Here's how to help raise money for childhood cancer research this weekend

The iWill Awareness Foundation continues its fight against pediatric brain cancer this weekend with a fundraiser at the Buffalo Wild Wings location on Glendale-Milford Road.

The iWill Awareness Foundation honors William Cox, a Princeton High School basketball player who died of pediatric brain cancer in 2013.

Cox's teammates Justin Goodall and Jonathan Boyle continue to work with the iWill Awareness foundation to raise funds for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG. It's the same illness that took Lauren Hill's life in April 2015, and it's a particularly aggressive and hard-to-treat form of cancer, since it consists of tumors that form around the brain stem — one of the body's most delicate and vital pieces.

The event takes place July 2 from 11 a.m. until midnight at the 4550 Glendale Milford Road Buffalo Wild Wings location.

Use the ticket in the image below to partake in the fundraiser. Ten percent of sales go toward the foundation.
