Kick-It was founded by a 10-year old cancer patient with a big dream - to cure cancer by playing kickball. Now a national fundraising program, Kick-It has raised $800,000 since 2009. There is one simple goal- to accelerate a cure for children with cancer. No parent should have to watch a child wait for a cure. By organizing a game, joining a team or making a donation, you are helping thousands of children fighting cancer in your hometown and across the country.

“WHY ARE YOU KICKING IT”
Kick-It is launching a national movement to kick cancer out of EVERY childhood. People will write a message to show support for children with cancer on a sign, take a photo and upload it to a Facebook community page. The campaign will feature people from all walks of life: from pediatric cancer patients to professional athletes. The goal is to have half a million photo messages by September 1st for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

WHERE THE FUNDS GO
Funds raised benefit children’s cancer research across the country. Kick-It utilizes national medical advisory boards to identify the most promising research studies and projects including the clinical research of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). The COG reaches more than 90% of the children with cancer in the United States.
