Thanks for your support!
Kick-It was founded by a 10-year old cancer patient with a big dream- to cure cancer by playing kickball. Now a national fundraising program, Kick-it raises money for pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research.
Funds raised benefit children's cancer research across the country. Kick-it partners with national medical
advisory boards to identify the most promising research studies and projects such as:
- A study of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors at Harvard Medical College; The Children's Tumor Foundation
- Clinical research of the Children's Oncology Group, reaching 90 percent of the children with cancer in the United States
We have one simple goal- to accelerate a cure for children with cancer. No parent should have to watch a child wait for a cure. By organizing a game, joining a team or making a donation, you are helping thousands of children fighting cancer in your hometown and across the country.
The Cleveland Indians have supported Kick-It since its inception. Cleveland Indians Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Paul Dolan is passionate about finding a cure for pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research. The commitment from the Indians organization allowed Kick-it to grow from a single event to a national organization. Thanks to our partnership, corporations, school teams and Tribe fans across Northeast Ohio have raised more than $700,000.
Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation was founded in 1999 by four-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Jeff Gordon. The mission of the
Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation is to support children battling cancer by funding programs that improve patients' quality of
life, treatment programs that increase survivorship and pediatric medical research dedicated to finding a cure.
Our vision is that there will be a day when no child will face the uncertainty of cancer and that successful treatments will not result in negative, long-term effects. Partnering with Kick-It will bring us one step closer to kicking cancer out of every childhood, once and for all. We hope that you will join us in the Kick-it movement.
