A Special Thank You to the KIDS 4 KIDS National Spokespersons' Team of the last 10 years whose feet DID encourage all of us to De"FEET" cancer and score for the kids. (So let's keep going!)

Dirk Nowitzki National Captain

"With your help, together we CAN continue to run, snore and De"FEET" cancer for kids. Snoring is my way of scoring for the kids because I will not be able to be there with you at the RUN/WALK. Please join me and doctors throughout the country - BE A CHAMP AND De"FEET" CANCER!"

Dirk Nowitzki

Dallas Mavericks

Star NBA Player

Kent Steffes National Captain

"Spiking that ball over the net on the sand was always a challenge. But there is no challenge greater than securing a healthier future for our children. So please join me, as together with Children's Cancer Research Fund, I'll get my "FEET" out of the sand and join your "FEET" as we go the distance for the kids."

Kent Steffes

Beach Volleyball Player

Clayton Kershaw National Captain

"Strikeouts are a big part of the game of baseball. But striking out kids cancer is a job for all of us. It is truly an honor to partner with Children's Cancer Research Fund. No matter what your calling and profession may be, we all share this responsibility--finding a way to make life better for children. Come walk. Come run. Come join our team–striking out cancer for good."

Holy Cow...Wow...Oh My Gosh!

10th Annual Kids 4 Kids RUN/WALK 2015 Brought Out the "Kid" in All of Us

In Support of Children's Cancer Research Fund

Thank you

The concept for Kids 4 Kids RUN/WALK evolved from important changes Matti has seen over the years in children’s awareness of cancer and the incredible generosity from kids of all ages wanting to help kids with cancer. “Countless times we’ve experienced amazing examples of hope and determination in children whether they were patients battling cancer or determined children who emptied their own piggybanks to make a donation to our organization,” said Matti. This was a spectacular Event as kids of ALL ages from throughout California did participate in a truly fun Event with a very special mission: to create a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER future for all children. With the moneys raised, HAPPIER will be supplies for the arts and crafts programs at Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camps, and HEALTHIER will be the funding of new grants in clinical research in pediatric oncology.

Matti

A BIG Thank You to the talented performers who
brought music and fun to the event in our first
