What are you doing this summer? Want to help make a powerful difference in a child's life and make yourself healthier along the way?

Now is your chance to challenge yourself and others or you can support the cause and simply donate today! Please help us support CHOC by making a contribution to our team and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar raised will advance CHOC's Onc-Fertility Initiative.

The Challenge:

Run/Walk and Log a 100 miles between 5/1 - 7/1 by tracking your distance on pavement or trail. Commit to donate $1 or more for every mile you plan on completing between that time frame. Think you can go further? The top three participants who log the most miles and raise the top funds will earn a special award and free registration to the MOMENTUM 5K that will be held in the fall.

The Cause:

What if you are a childhood cancer survivor who, one day, also wants to have a family? The aggregate five-year cancer survival rate of more than 85% for children, adolescents and teens is leading to research that can preserve fertility, which may have been impacted by the cancer itself or the therapies to treat it, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgical procedures.

Hope comes from Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC, which is part of the national interdisciplinary Oncofertility Consortium exploring the relationships between health, cancer, survivorship and fertility preservation. CHOC also is the only institution on the west coast to partner with Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago in research around pediatric and adolescent ovarian biology and fertility leading to the next generation of protocols for ovarian tissue banking. Oncology fertility treatment is not covered by insurance; rather, it is solely supported through philanthropy...that's where MOMENTUM is here to help!

By making a donation you are making a gift in any amount to help create an endowment that would provide sustainable funds for young patients to preserve their fertility and allow them to remain hopeful and create future plans in the face of cancer.

Moving miles for our hearts and moving miles for a cause. Help give the gift of hope, share the joy of parenthood, give legacy a chance and be part of meaningful generational change.

Together, we can make a difference!
