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 Kriibskrank 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. Since 2020 we have invested a total of 6.53 million euros, of which 1.5 million euros are funded by KickCancer.

In October 2021, we launched our third FIGHT KIDS CANCER call for projects for a total amount of 4,75 million euros of which KickCancer has the ambition to finance 1 million euros thanks to RUN TO KICK.

In Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Italy, as well as in other European countries in the future, those projects are indeed 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.

Register today for RUN TO KICK 2022 by running, walking or donating to one of your friends that participate or by sponsoring us and shooting kids’ cancer forever away!
