CHAMP provides respite, support, and hope to children impacted by a childhood cancer diagnosis and their families through weekend retreats and also the annual CHAMP Event in September.
CHAMP provides no cost On-Treatment Retreats to families of children currently in treatment. Taking a break from the rigors of treatment helps families to reconnect. Children on treatment are able to enjoy activities with no judgement or expectations. Siblings are to share stories and find strength and comfort amongst their peers. Parents are pampered, restored, and find community with other families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis. These retreats restore hope, strengthen family ties, and develop a lasting support system for families in the midst of treatment for childhood cancer.
CHAMP is a unique organization which draws together non-profits passionate about the cause of childhood cancer. Through a collaborative annual event in September, we raise awareness, educate and empower the community to get involved, provide support and resources to families impacted by a childhood cancer diagnosis, and unite the community in the fight against childhood cancer.
The CHAMP event provides resources in one location to educate the community to the many resources available in the event of a new diagnosis. It also facilitates a smooth transition into the childhood cancer support system which families so desperately need. The CHAMP event is a fun, family event which includes a 5k Run/Walk, breakfast, booth fair, and CHAMPION Walk (in which children on treatment, in remission, and kids who fought bravely and gained their wings) are celebrated, supported and honored.
Join us in September to ‘Impact the Outcome of Childhood Cancer’.
