WWE has once again partnered with the V Foundation through Connor’s Cure to raise funds for pediatric cancer research during Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month in September. This year’s campaign features 11 new pediatric patients from the New Orleans area who have transformed into their own WWE Superstar characters. Each child designed their own ring gear, chose their entrance music and revealed their Superstar personas in front of more than 800 fans, WWE Superstars and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania Axxess.
To assist fundraising efforts for Connor’s Cure, WWE produced a limited-edition Connor’s Cure Collection, featuring T-shirts (available now at WWECustomTees.com), a limited number of gold mini-titles (available now at WWEAuction.com) and the original Connor’s Cure bracelet (available now at WWEShop.com/ConnorsCure). One hundred percent of net proceeds from sales of Connor’s Cure merchandise will directly benefit pediatric cancer research through the V Foundation’s grant-making process.
In addition to the new merchandise, select WWE Superstars will wear gold-colored versions of their iconic in-ring apparel, which are being auctioned off to benefit Connor’s Cure at WWEAuction.com.
