Every year, more than 1.6 million Americans will learn they have cancer; 1 in 3 people. Funds raised by Philly Kicking Cancer support Fox Chase Cancer Center to further efforts in finding cures to all kinds of cancers. In the past 18 months, cancer did not stop and neither did Fox Chase Cancer Center with serving countless people and their ongoing research efforts.
Since our first ever event in 2009, Kicking Cancer Foundation's primary fundraising event to support Fox Chase Cancer Center has been our annual charity Kickball Tournament, usually hosted in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia. Due to the Pandemic and ongoing restrictions on large outdoor events, for 2021 we are shifting our focus and going virtual by creating an event where anyone can participate. For this virtual event, created to be a challenge spanning the entire month of august. You can contribute at your own time, in your own location, at your own pace. Run/Walk or Bike! All proceeds go towards supporting cancer research.
