Event Description

Join us in this celebration of our Warrior Families and help in the fight
against pediatric cancer. Participants can raise additional money to support the cause through fundraising
as an individual or by forming a team. Many of the teams formed each year are to honor a local pediatric
cancer patient or in memory of a child who has lost the battle to this terrible disease.

Since 1980, WOKC has offered comfort and hope to kids with cancer through support programs serving the entire family and funds innovative research leading to new discoveries and treatments in the fight against pediatric cancer. The WOKC approach features three primary initiatives. WOKC funds novel pediatric cancer innovations that lead to advancements in treatment outcomes. Furthermore, the WOKC Science and Medical Research Committee carefully analyzes, scores, and selects cutting-edge research projects that might not initially receive traditional funding. WOKC has significantly impacted the pediatric cancer space by funding over $8 million in pioneering research. This seed money has yielded more than $22 million in grant money from large cancer organizations like the National Cancer Institute. While we are relentlessly searching for a cure, the significance of increased survival rates, less invasive treatments, and prevention of harmful side effects are also reasons why research is critical.

Kids shouldn’t get cancer. When they do... YOU can help.
