Walk for Mattie Miracle – May 17, 2020 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Funding Mattie Miracle's Cancer Foundation programs and initiatives by walking helps children and their families during the year.

Alexandria, VA – Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation needs your help more than ever this year! The City of Alexandria has canceled their Walk & Family Festival due to the impact of the Coronavirus. Help fund Mattie Miracle’s programs and initiatives by walking to raise money.

Childhood cancer does not take a break for a pandemic. The psycho-social consequences on children and their families are even greater now, as families now are worrying about rescheduling treatment, postponing surgery, and being isolated from one another while in the hospital.

10% of Walk proceeds will fund Coronavirus Family Relief Grants, directly supporting children with cancer & their families at Children’s Hospital at Sinai.
