This 8 week program which reintroduces “being active and physical” to children and teens who have become inactive due to their cancer and/or treatment. This fun family running group incorporates a training curriculum and culminates with the kids participating in a 5K Run. Come out to cheer on these Superhero Kids!
Rocky Ridge Teen Camp
Superhero Kids funds Camp Rocky Ridge for approximately thirty teen patients and staff each year. Various activities give the teens an opportunity to meet other patients who are on or off treatment, and share challenges other teens face while dealing with Cancer.
Each year we bring approximately 800 patients and families together for an unforgettable holiday event. The children and families are treated to dinner, dancing, gifts for each child, pictures with Santa, carriage Rides, , face painting, and seasonal art activities , surrounded by the love and support of a caring Central Texas community. Patients will appreciate the chance to spend time away from the hospital setting to enjoy a fun evening surrounded by all the familiar faces and loving hearts from the Children’s Blood & Cancer Center.
College Scholarship Program
Each year graduating senior patients who are planning on attending college the following year, are awarded scholarships, based on need and family history as expressed by each patient in a 500 word essay application process. The scholarships are announced at the Hungry Brunch Prom and later, families are invited to a luncheon honoring each recipient.
