SUPPORT THE KID FOR CANCER I...
Aiding kids with cancer
To raise and distribute funds to help children fighting cancer. Our primary focus for distribution of donations is to help pay for the cost of experimental cancer treatments, resources for travel to these treatments and any meals or lodging needed while receiving them.
“By The Kid, for the kids!” MISSION
Support the Kid was organized to address the issue of the lack of additional support and funds for children that are battling cancer, especially in the area of experimental cancer treatments. The organization mobilizes volunteers to reach out to the community and businesses, engage them in fundraising events, in order to educate our cause and raise funds to distribute to families in need with children battling cancer.
Support The Kid was founded in 2010 by Nicholas Wolber and friends. Nick was touched by the spirit and innocence of the children he encountered during his time in treatment at Cohen’s Children’s Hospital in New York. He relished the big brother role and playing with the kids to brighten their day. When Nick was finally cancer free and had established a career for himself he began work on planting the seeds of what would become Support the Kid.
We are an all-volunteer 501(c) 3 nonprofit with no employees or consultants on payroll. We make a focused effort to ensure that non-essential expenses are minimized so that each donation’s value can be maximized. Our goal is to ensure that over 85% of each donation goes directly to the Kids.
Support the Kid is currently run by a board of four family members along with associated regional and specialized volunteer representatives. All STK representatives volunteer their time, knowledge, resources and energies to the cause. Our board member backgrounds range from executive, engineering, financial, technology, and educational careers.
