With your help, our researchers can work to put an end to the devastating cancers that take kids’ lives every day.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death from disease in children under the age of 15. While researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and many other pediatric cancer centers are making great progress in the search for a cure, they need more funding to continue their work. So each September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CHOP rallies to increase visibility of pediatric cancer in our communities. Get involved by learning, joining, sharing, and speaking up for kids with cancer.
These are a few of the amazing children who participated in the 2015 Parkway Run & Walk, which raised money for pediatric cancer research and survivorship programs at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Four Seasons Parkway Run & Walk
More than 9,000 runners, walkers, sponsors and donors helped us raise more than $1 million for cancer research and survivorship programs at CHOP.
Speak Up For Kids With Cancer
There are many ways you can help us develop better treatments that will change the future for the next generation of children diagnosed with cancer.
