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.
Please donate your race medals to:

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 act. Honoring a child in less fortunate circumstances provides a valuable example about the importance of empathy, compassion, and community service.
We need your help to purchase, print, and sometimes mail deliver capes. Our goal in 2020 is to deliver 2,020 capes to kids with cancer.
Your donation of $25 can provide a personalized cape to a child courageously battling cancer. This is your chance to be an everyday hero supporting the ultimate heroes - kids fighting cancer. You can personally connect with the child by leaving a message with your donation. Click here or below to be a cape crusader.
