Celebration of Champions
Our Champions – childhood cancer patients- along with sponsors, family members and celebrities – perform an Olympic-style relay passing the “Torch of Life” from one to another symbolizing their spirit and determination to fight their life-threatening disease. There are other activities throughout the day including a balloon ceremony honoring children who have passed on and a Circle of Life where all 2000 attendees join hands to sing our theme song of hope.
This day of Celebration also raises funds for unique cancer support programs at the Peckham Center that help patients and families from the first moment of diagnosis to their final treatment. These social, psychological and emotional support programs provide lifelines to patients’ families devastated by their child’s cancer diagnosis and the catastrophic cost of treatment. These support programs are not reimbursed by insurance and are only made possible by donations from generous supporters like you!
The 2021 Celebration of Champions event will look a little different this year but it will still give us all an opportunity to support for the brave Peckham Center survivors as they journey through a difficult time in their young lives. A virtual Celebration of Champions video will be released the morning of May 15, 2021- the same date our live event was scheduled.
