KMs 4 Kids' Cancer

Step up to the challenge for kids with cancer and walk, run or bike as many kilometres as you can!

From September 1 to 30, 2020, we will get moving to ensure kids with cancer receive the best possible care and the best possible chance at returning to a normal childhood.


We are challenging you to walk, run or bike the distance they travel from their hometowns to their appointments at Children’s Hospital in London. You will also be raising important funds that support programs and equipment they rely on!




Cancer Hasn't Stopped Because of the Pandemic

Did you know Children’s Hospital is Western Ontario’s most advanced paediatric care centre?

Last year, there were over 5,400 cancer care visits. And over 120 kids required an inpatient stay for their cancer treatment.

Thousands of kids continue to fight cancer at Children’s Hospital.

You'll be tracking your kilometres for kids like:


KM 4 Kids' Cancer

Pepper - London (5KM)
Jack - Dorchester (20KM)
Joey - Ingersoll (40KM)
Olivia - Burgessville (60KM)
Seth - Thunder Bay (1,541KM)
