License plates introduced to help fight pediatric cancer

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Riley’s Army is introducing a new campaign featuring a license plate to help in their fight against pediatric cancer.

The license plate fee is $30, with $10 going to the Children’s Oncology group, and $10 going to Riley’s Army.

The campaign was started by two moms who lost a child because of cancer.

Organizers said the plates will play a part in the fight against the disease.

“You’re supporting children in North Carolina, but it also goes to a national research foundation,” said Meridith Hoyle with Riley’s Army. “Obviously cancer is continuing to become a more prevalent thing, we need more research.”

500 paid applications must be submitted by February 15, 2016. The applications will then be submitted to the DMV, who will pass them along to the General Assembly for final authorization.

To request an application or for more information, email the group at Checks should be made payable to Kick Cancer For kids, and can be mailed, along with the application, to PO Box 194 Wallburg, NC 27373.
