"With your help, together we CAN continue to run and De"FEET" cancer for kids. Supporting Childrens Cancer Research Fund 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!"

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 is a spectacular Event as kids of ALL ages from throughout California 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.
