Background:

Sylvie Hughes was a three and a half-year old Ridgewood resident who was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer on 2/11/09 and was treated successfully by the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at the Tomorrows Children's Institute for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Hackensack University Medical Center. Sylvie made a full recovery and was back to her normal toddler activities and preschool by 9/09. She regained her strength, confidence and wit. So did her family. On 11/29/09, Sylvie suddenly passed away.

Strides For Sylvie launched in 2009 at the Ridgewood Run which takes place each Memorial Day and is one of the biggest nationally recognized community runs in the country. In 2009, Sylvie made a guest appearance and cheered on over 100 friends and family who ran in her honor and raised more than $15,000 for the Tomorrows Children's Fund at Hackensack University Medical Center where she was being treated. Last year's race was sadly in her memory. Nearly 200 folks ran wearing Strides For Sylvie shirts and raised $30,000 for TCF.

The Tomorrows Children's Fund is a non-profit organization that was developed by the parents of children with cancer and blood disorders. The organization addresses the critical needs of families facing childhood cancers and blood disorders by working with the medical staff to provide:

- State-of-the-art care in a warm, healthy, and loving atmosphere for children during their treatment
- A wide range of services to relieve emotional and financial stress
- Funding for research on childhood cancer and serious blood disorders
