[9/29] Young Heroes 5K Walk/Run and Kiddie K

Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD) is very excited to announce its first 5K Walk/Run and Kiddie K on September 29, 2019!  Heroes come in all shapes and size.  Here at NCCBD, our heroes are the kids that face cancer, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders every day. 

The NCCBD offers patient - and family - centered pediatric oncology and hematology care that includes the full range of clinical and support services alongside internationally recognized research programs. Less than 5% of U.S. government funding is dedicated to all childhood cancer research and funding is greatly needed.

The “Young Heroes 5K Walk/Run and Kiddie K” will raise funds for research and patient services at NCCBD at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.  You will have the option to run or walk the 5K and kids twelve and under will have the optoin of participating in the Kiddie K!  In addition to the race, the morning will be filled with a car show, food trucks, vendors and lots of family fun!

You can join us an individual or participate in a team!   All registrations will include a special t-shirt designed and we will have fundraising incentives along the way!  Don’t miss out on our early bird incentive!  Registration fees for runners and walkers are only $20 and kids $5 until July 15, 2019!

Whether you walk or run, you will be helping children like Cece (pictured on the far right in our event header above), who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL).  Read Cece's full story...

To register as an individual or team, please click on "Register for this Event" and walk through the registration steps.  There will be sample text on your webpage but we encourage you to personalize your page and tell the "why" you decided to fundraise for childhood cancer.

Please join us as we fundraise for our young heroes!
