FIGHT KIDS CANCER

This is one of the achievements we are most proud of.


FIGHT KIDS CANCER is a joint initiative by KickCancer, Imagine for Margo (France) and the Fondatioun Kriib- skrank Kanner (Luxembourg), the aim of which is to accelerate the most innovative treatments thanks to European financing and collaboration of research on paediatric cancers. FIGHT KIDS CANCER entails the launch of recurring annual calls for projects.


In 2020, the first FIGHT KIDS CANCER call for projects lead to the selection, by independent international experts, of six innovative research projects, from which 800 000 € are financed by KickCancer. Thanks to those projects, we hope enable major progress in the under- standing and treatments of the following diseases:


- High-grade gliomas (brain tumours – 2 projects: one clinical trial and one translational project)

- Acute myeloïd leukaemias (AML)

- Rhabdoid tumours

- Osteosarcomas

- Neuroblastomas


The second call for projects is up and running and will lead to the selection of innovative projects for up to 3 million euros as well.


In Belgium, France and Luxembourg, as well as in other European countries in the future, those projects are financed thanks to the organisation of our charity family races. When more runners participate or their motivation to fundraise increases, the amount we can invest in research follows suit.
