7th Annual Kids 4 Kids RUN/WALK  
Brings Out the KID in All of Us
In Support of
Children's Cancer Research Fund

"Thank You to all of you who have joined the Kids 4 Kids Team. Together, we are the Most Valuable Players when it comes to helping children with cancer - THANK YOU!"

Matti Contopulos
Children's Cancer Research Fund

Kids possess a uniquely powerful spirit of hope and an untarnished belief that their wildest dreams can be accomplished, whether it's becoming President of the United States, or finding a cure for cancer. Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) Founder/President Matti Contopulos believe there's a kid in all of us and created the annual Kids 4 Kids RUN/WALK.

The concept for Kids 4 Kids RUN/WALK evolved from important changes Matti has seen over the years in children's awareness of cancer and the incredible generosity from kids of all ages wanting to help kids with cancer. "Countless times we've experienced amazing examples of hope and determination in children whether they were patients battling cancer or determined children who emptied their own piggybanks to make a donation to our organization," said Matti. This is a spectacular Event as kids of ALL ages from throughout Southern California participate in a truly fun Event with a very special mission: to create a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER future for all children. With the monies raised, HAPPIER will be supplies for the arts and crafts programs at Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps, and HEALTHIER will be the funding of new grants in clinical research in pediatric oncology. There is no RUN/WALK like this in the country and we feel it has become a national campaign with an incredible impact on pediatric cancer, having raised over $1.6 million in the first six years. For the doctors tackling research, for the children and families dealing with cancer, and for our Most Valuable Players (YOU) who are participating...this promises to be an incredible Event for all.
