Welcome to the 12th Annual Walk / Run to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley!


We are so excited to be IN-PERSON once again! However, we will still be offering a VIRTUAL option for those who feel more comfortable with that. In addition, we will be closely monitoring local, state and federal CDC guidelines and making changes to the format of this event as necessary. If we need to go back to an entirely virtual format as in 2020, we will inform you in the most timely manner possible.

For the last TWELVE years, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike. Last year's VIRTUAL event raised almost $70,000 to support our mission - so we thank you for your continued support during difficult times! We are looking forward to a great event this year!

PCFLV's ability to help local pediatric cancer families during the most traumatic time of their lives is a result of our fundraising efforts. Please help us in this mission by fundraising as an individual or for your team. We encourage teams!

The Foundation

Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley Mission Statement

We embrace the pediatric cancer journey alongside children and their families, moving forward as a community with love, hope, and smiles.  We will ...
                Support at diagnosis
                Encourage during treatment
                Empower in survivorship
                Comfort throughout bereavement

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley is a local 501c(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to helping children and families affected by pediatric cancer by providing free and unique programming and support during treatment, survivorship, and bereavement. We are focused on creating a loving and supportive cancer community for families whose lives have been forever changed by hearing the words, "Your child has cancer." We host events and activities to create free-of-charge opportunities for families to have fun and to find nurturing support within the pediatric cancer community. We have regular, ongoing programming like our Kids Konnect program and monthly Moms’ /Dads'/Parents' Nights Out, as well as much-loved annual events like Camp Smile. PCFLV makes monthly visits to the inpatient pediatric floor and the outpatient pediatric oncology clinic at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital through our Chemo Circus and Caregiver Coffee programs, armed with an array of arts and crafts, gifts, entertainment, and food to distract children during their treatment and to create happiness and smiles. We have a bill-paying fund for families treated at LVRCH. And we are also always available to make specially-requested and personalized visits to children during inpatient stays, as well as home visits. We provide individual and specialized assistance based on the needs of our families as well, often in the form of grocery and gas gift cards to help defray the often-unrecognized costs of dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. We provide housecleaning services for newly diagnosed families, a college scholarship fund for high school graduates, and much more! Our fundraising events support this mission.
