Kids Ice Cancer and The Valerie Fund are teaming up to score a goal against pediatric cancer in New Jersey. Kids Ice Cancer was founded in 2019 by 16-year-old Andrew Low, who lost loved ones to cancer. Andrew, a sophomore at the Morristown-Beard School, wanted to combine his love of hockey with his desire to raise money for pediatric cancer charities. He recruited 40 kids from the North Jersey area to participate in the Kids Ice Cancer annual hockey game. In the few months leading up to the game, the players all raise money for pediatric cancer. This year, Kids Ice Cancers fundraising will go to The Valerie Fund and the All-Star Hockey Game will be on Friday, March 27th at 7:00 PM. The game will be held at the most thrilling new venue in New Jersey, American Dream.
The Valerie Fund Walk & JAG-ONE Physical Therapy 5K on June 13th will be a powerful day for The Valerie Fund community. Patients, families, and friends from all over the area will come together in Essex County's Verona Park in Verona, NJ for a day of running, walking, eating, and sharing stories honoring the heroes, the brave children of The Valerie Fund. But did you know there is a very special group of people at the Walk who go above and beyond all year to ensure that we raise the most money possible for our Valerie Fund kids?
Learn what makes our Team Captains such a vital part of the Walk and how this year, The Valerie Fund will be giving them something special to recognize their efforts.
The Valerie Fund's mission is to provide support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders. We focus on the patient and the family who loves them. Our philosophy is that to truly heal a child, that child must be treated emotionally, socially, and developmentally as well as medically. Their families get support as well, which makes a world of difference for everyone.
None of this would have become a reality without a remarkable call to action that would honor Valerie's memory.
