1 out of 185 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20. This event helps local families in the fight and encourages more support for research and a cure. In its first year, this event raised more than $74,000 for the cause. Since 2000, NNCCF has supported local families with more than $4.6 million dollars in support through financial and emotional assistance during and after a child’s diagnosis.


The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation is the region’s only non-profit solely dedicated to serving local children and their families affected by childhood cancer.
