Donate your race bling to true heroes - kids battling cancer.
Sponsor a personalized cape for a kid fighting cancer.
Celebrating kids who reach the ultimate goal - ringing the bell.
In 2019, nine-year-old Matteo ran 36 different 5K & 10K races in 15 states and Canada. In every race he "borrowed the SuperPowers" of a kid with cancer by wearing a cape that featured their name and favorite photo. The capes were often the sick child's favorite color, which made it extra special when Matteo "returned SuperPowers" to a cancer-fighting boy or girl after the race. This tradition continues.
When given a personalized cape, kids with cancer feel empowered to persevere in their harrowing journey. Their parents also feel uplifted when a stranger makes this simple but selfless gesture to their young hero.
Is your child or a kid you know currently battling cancer? We'd love to honor and empower her / him with a personalized cape in their color of choice. When possible, Matteo will do a video like the one below.

You ran a 5K, 10K, half-marathon, marathon, or even an Ironman event. That's awesome, and you deserve a medal. But, do you know who would appreciate one of your medals even more than you? A kid battling cancer. Our running a race is nothing compared to what they experience - needles, feeding tubes, chemotherapy, and so much more.
Let's honor their courage by giving them our medals.
