New York Giants

In 2015, Tackle Kids Cancer kicked off our partnership with the New York Giants and Eli Manning, which is deeply rooted in a shared tradition of helping the community. You can support Tackle Kids Cancer through several Giants related programs including Eli’s Challenge, local fundraisers, and fundraising programs with our retail partners.

We are proud to say that we have raised over $7 million dollars through the support of the Giants, their fans and Eli Manning. We also provided our MVPs with unforgettable VIP experiences.

During the program’s inaugural season, the Tackle Kids Cancer team had the chance to take the field and thank the Giants and their fans for their support in raising over $1,000,000 in just a few short months. Donations both large and small helped make a difference in funding vital research programs and treatments at the Children’s Cancer Institute.

Eli Manning – Walter Payton Man of the Year Finalist

Eli Manning was named one of the final three candidates for the 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year, an award given to the NFL player for excellence on and off the field. Eli Manning joined the groundbreaking initiative for Tackle Kids Cancer by being part of an extensive media campaign to raise awareness for pediatric cancer. Eli even spent time visiting with patients and doctors at the Children’s Cancer Institute.

Sohn-Manning Survivorship Program

At the 2016 New York Sohn Investment Conference, Eli Manning and the Sohn Conference Foundation announced the Sohn-Manning Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Program. A $500,000 grant was used to form the Sohn-Manning Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Program to benefit Cure and Beyond at Hackensack University Medical Center. This grant will help provide research and services to help long-term health, emotional and social issues specific to pediatric cancer survivors.

Eli's Challenge

Quarterback Eli Manning was inspired by many scout troops, youth sports teams, and schools that raised money for Tackle Kids Cancer. To raise even more funds, for Tackle Kids Cancer, he created Eli’s Challenge to support grassroots group fundraisers. Whether it is a bake sale, car wash, or lemonade stand, every donation made to Tackle Kids Cancer will be matched by Eli up to $200,000. Join the team with Eli to Tackle Kids Cancer.
