Who We Are
Kids Walk for MSK Kids brings together patients, students, families, and supporters to walk and raise money to beat pediatric cancers. 100% of every dollar goes to fighting pediatric cancers through research and new discoveries at MSK Kids, Memorial Sloan Kettering’s pediatric program.
Pediatric cancers receive less than 4% of federal funding.
The doctors and researchers at MSK Kids rely on the generosity of donors to make up the difference—that’s where the Kids Walk for MSK Kids community comes in! 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to MSK Kids—where more children, teens, and young adults with cancer are treated than any other hospital in the United States.
$7+ Million Raised
In 2019, Kids Walk for MSK Kids raised over $1 million for pediatric cancer research. The dedication and hard work of our participants, donors, and supporters of all ages help bring us one step closer to beating pediatric cancers. Since Kids Walk started in 2001, we have raised more than $7 million, with over $4 million raised in the last four years.
For more than a century, Memorial Sloan Kettering has been at the forefront of the most significant advances in treating pediatric cancers—even the rarest types. Every dollar raised through Kids Walk for MSK Kids gives the doctors and researchers at MSK what they need to make new discoveries in the lab and provide better treatment options to the bedside of all children, teens, and young adults. It’s also important to remember that discoveries made at MSK Kids can improve the lives of young people with cancer around the world.
