Advancing pediatric cancer care worldwide

Specializing in kids. Specializing in cancer. Within Memorial Sloan Kettering, we’re a multidisciplinary center of excellence for treating kids and young adults with cancer, as well as immune deficiencies and benign blood disorders. Did you know our doctors and staff care for more pediatric patients with different types of cancer than any other center in the United States? We see more rare cancers in a single day than most physicians see in a lifetime. With this deep focus entirely on kids and cancer, our staff can give each patient the most accurate diagnosis and the best possible care.

Pioneering new treatments for all. Every member of our clinical team contributes to groundbreaking research that opens up more treatment options and sets new standards of care at MSK Kids and beyond. Our teams have developed treatments where there previously were none. Alongside other leading institutions, we are pursuing the next frontier of therapies and approaches to support people facing pediatric cancer around the world.

of childhood cancer patients in the United States are now long-term survivors because of advances in treatment—many of them made at MSK Kids.


90%

A Global, Virtual, Family Fun Run Supporting Youth Charities Around the World

Since 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown to an exciting series of 17 charitable Races taking around the world, supporting kids and youth-focused causes. In total, 290,000+ participants have raised more than C$65 million.

In 2020, the series of in-person Races couldn’t happen so we pivoted to a global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to continue raising much-needed funds for our charity partners. Last year, over 33,000 participants from 120+ countries raised more than C$8.8 million!

Join us and participants from all around the globe to raise awareness and support for our 35 charity partners in 19 countries – and the young people they help during this challenging time.
