Friends of Kids with Cancer Virtual Race

Friends of Kids with Cancer is committed to keeping patient families, staff, volunteers and our community safe.  The members of our FOKWC Family are among the most vulnerable and compromised - cancer patients and survivors, healthcare workers, researchers and doctors who are on the front lines of this crisis. They need us now more than ever and we are working closely with our hospital partners on new ways to bring comfort to our families during this uncertain and difficult time. 

In light of everything happening we want to remain positive and upbeat! Which is why the race must go on... virtually of course ;) That's right we are encouraging our participants to get moving wherever they are. A walk around the block, a run down the street, or a stroll in the backyard whatever you can do to help kids with cancer... be kids! 

Pictures and videos should be submitted to our Communications Specialist Mary at mary@friendsofkids.com OR upload them directly to our Facebook Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2732348233514936/

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run/walk the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

Thanks for your patience but most importantly for helping kids with cancer... be kids!

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
