Just north of downtown Las Vegas lies the Old Mormon Fort, the first permanent, non-native structure built by missionaries in the Las Vegas Valley in 1855. Two years later, the mission was abandoned due to harsh weather conditions and challenges with the natives. Today, a portion of the original adobe stockade wall, underground foundations of ranch buildings, and historical artifacts remain in stark contrast with vast and modern Las Vegas. Breathe in the alpine mountain air and learn some Nevada history at the Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway. A memorial honors the Silent Heroes of the Cold War, and Seven Stones Plaza represents the Seven Southern Paiute Native American tribes. Finish the day with a cup of world-famous hot chocolate at the Mt. Charleston Lodge.

Spirit of Nevada - St. Baldrick's Foundation

By the St. Baldrick’s Foundation working closely with leading pediatric oncologists, they determine the most promising research to fund and create funding priorities to make the greatest impact for children with cancer. Here are some creative ways they’re doing just that: Providing hospitals the funds to open high-impact clinical trials for rare disease types, placing more children on studies to increase the rate of progress, while also increasing the likelihood for a child to receive the best treatment plan in a hospital near home. Funding researchers to work together, so that research currently underway by the best and brightest investigators is shared between institutions, and even across continents, giving all children with cancer the best chance for a cure. Training the next generation of researchers—in 2005, a shortage of pediatric oncologists was predicted, and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation stepped in to ensure that every child with cancer will have a doctor and tomorrow’s research will not be interrupted. Funding supportive care research to improve the quality of life for patients and survivors. Supportive care research addresses the side effects of treatment, long-term effects faced by survivors, psychosocial aspects of childhood cancer and more.
