Tackle Kids Cancer
Tackle Kids Cancer raises crucial funds for pediatric cancer research and patient care programs for our TKC MVPs (Most Valiant Patients), and their families, receiving care at Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital and K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital. With only 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to childhood cancer, every donation makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
Donations made to Tackle Kids Cancer directly benefit essential clinical care, unique support services and groundbreaking cancer research needed to find a cure. Since its launch in 2015, grassroots fundraisers have been at the heart of our organization, as local communities, schools, families and more, come together to fundraise so we can tackle kids cancer.
