Target demographics: Children with cancer at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's National Medical Center

Direct beneficiaries per year: Children's has approximately 300 new diagnoses in cancer each year and it has conducted 50 Bone Marrow Transplants (BMTs) each year. Children’s National receives over 19,000 annual visits from children fighting cancer. Cancer treatment requires children, once diagnosed, to return for treatment often multiple times a week for months to three years depending on diagnosis. Once active treatment is completed, children must return annually for up to 5 years while in maintenance.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help to publicize the run in advance, fundraise for the run, and of course, encourage friends and family to register for the race and help on race day.

Geographic areas served: Greater Washington, D.C. area, including Maryland and Virginia and surrounding states

Programs: Proceeds will benefit Children National Medical Center’s Divisions of Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplant.

Mission:
Our mission is simple: to help kids fight cancer. That means improving cancer treatments, combating side effects of treatment and ultimately, finding a cure for childhood cancers.
Results:
In 2011, which was the first year of our run, Ben's Run sent $33,000 to Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. In 2012, another $47,000 was sent to Children's for a total to date of $80,000!

I, too, have a personal association with Ben's Run/Ben's Gift as I am proud to have been Ben's aunt. As I was unable to participate in the run this year, my status is only that of a donor, though I thoroughly enjoyed assisting (in a small way) with the first run in 2011. It was an exciting event... more »
