In memory of ASTOR. I decided to register for RUN TO KICK because I wanted to support the cause of research against children's cancer carried by KickCancer. Today, there is too little innovation in favour of children with cancer: most greatest leaps forward in the field of cancer, which the medias rave about, only benefit to the adult population... despite the facts that paediatric cancers are the first cause of death by disease and that 2/3 children's cancer survivors have to go through life with severe side effects caused by their treatments. It is urgent to cure more children and to cure them better. I participate in RUN TO KICK so that I can shoot children's cancer and send it far, far away and may it never come back! By supporting my race, you will help me shooting farther and harder. Thank you!

We have a mission. A beautiful mission. We want to cure every child’s cancer.

Find new treatments, improve existing ones, and kick children’s cancer to send it far, far away forever and may it never come back!

We therefore financially support scientific research, and bring together the drive, inspiration and knowledge of everyone involved. From researchers, doctors and parents to politicians and pharmaceutical companies. Only a joint effort can ensure that children with cancer are cured and better cured.

Today, research is often funded at a national level or through networks. We want to do better. We indeed believe that the most promising projects, wherever they originate from, should be selected and financed. We simply want to find the best projects.

This is why KickCancer is going to launch shortly an open European call for research projects. For such a tender to be successful, we have to mobilise a significant amount of funds in order to make sure that the best (academic) research teams are motivated to participate.

Your donation will help increase the amount from KickCancer in that call. This call for project will be launched in the course of 2019 and we hope that it will raise the ambition of European researchers to a new exciting level in the field of paediatric oncology.
