Our Impact

Tackle Kids Cancer was initiated to make a difference, both in the lives of the children in New Jersey, and around the globe. With only 4% of the national cancer research budget allocated to pediatric cancer research, the team at the Children’s Cancer Institute recognized the need for a philanthropic program to move the needle.

Donations made to Tackle Kids Cancer directly benefit essential clinical care, groundbreaking cancer research, and unique survivorship support services. Learn more about our impact and how you can help!

Since its launch in September 2015, Tackle Kids Cancer has raised over $20 million in funds.
