Walk to Tackle Kids Cancer

This event is postponed. New date to be announced soon. For questions about the walk or to get involved please email or call Amy Glazer.


About the Walk

Tackle Kids Cancer, a philanthropic initiative of Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation, raises funds to support pediatric cancer research and inovative patient care programs.  While great strides have been made in some areas of pediatric cancer research, it is the number one death by disease in children.  Neurological cancers, the most devastating diagnosis, comprises the largest number of these deaths.  Funds raised through the walk will support three Tackle Kids Cancer funds supporting Hackensack Meridian Health’s pediatric cancer research program, including clinical and pure science research studies.  Funds will be split between Tommy Strong, Josephine’s Garden, and Katherine’s Fund to help further our efforts to find a cure.
