Support Our Superheroes

The Badger Childhood Cancer Network Superhero Run helps us raise awareness on the impact of childhood cancer on families in the Madison area. This event raises critical funds for the Badger Childhood Cancer Network’s programs that provide information, emotional support, emergency financial aid, and transportation assistance for families of children with cancer and blood disorders.

To make the event even more family friendly, this year’s event will be a Fun Run/Walk and won’t be timed. The money saved will directly benefit the families that need it.

Here is the schedule of events for September 22nd:

  • 7:30am:  Registration
  • 8:30am:  Opening Ceremony
  • 8:50am:  Kids’ Superhero Dash
  • 9:00am:  Superhero Run Starts (Awareness Walk to Begin After Runners Clear Starting Line)
  • Post Race Closing Awards Ceremony

Our Superheroes

Our four Superheroes represent the hundreds of kids on treatment for cancer and blood disorders in south-central Wisconsin. Hundreds of kids who are enduring aggressive treatments for life-threatening diseases and need your support! We need your help to provide the financial assistance, transportation help, social and emotional support, information and advocacy that they and their families need to get through some of the most difficult days of their lives.

Please register to run or walk, and consider raising pledges to help make a significant impact for regular kids fighting extraordinarily tough battles. Thank you!

Superhero Jase

Superhero Jase

My name is Jase. I am 4 1/2 years old. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma in December of 2015. I had a lot of issues during treatment. One of them was that my cancer was chemo resistant. I had an experimental Stem Cell Transplant done in November 2016. My recent scans read that I am still in remission. I love being able to go to school and play outside a lot more than I used to be able to when on treatment. I love Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and almost any show on Disney Jr. I get to play with my big brother and sister a lot more now which is very cool.

Superhero Noah

Superhero Noah

My name is Noah. I was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on March 14, 2017 and will continue treatment through June of 2020. I turned six years old in April and have a three year old brother, Charlie. Charlie and I like to go swimming, drive go-karts, play hockey and we LOVE to play outside. We are big Badger Hockey fans and also like to dress up like superheroes, police officers, fire fighters, Santa Claus, etc. I live with my parents, Charlie and our black lab, Lucy. Lucy is the sweetest dog ever and likes to play with us outside. I’m starting kindergarten this fall and just learned how to read. I’m so proud of myself and have worked hard on reading this year! My favorite subject in school is science and I ask my teacher lots of questions about how and why things work. I like all superheroes because they’re awesome!

Superhero Addison

Superhero Addison

My name is Addison and I am ten years old. I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in September 2017. I have two brothers and one sister and we live in Jefferson, Wisconsin. I love arts and crafts, puppies, swimming and my aquarium. When I grow up I want to be a pediatric nurse so I can help other sick kids!

Superhero Johnisha

Superhero Johnisha

My name is Johnisha and I am 18 years old! I have been battling a brain tumor since I was 11 years old. I am currently on my second round of chemo. I have a strong, caring, loving, supportive mother, 6 sisters and 1 brother. When I am doing well, I enjoy hanging out with friends or visiting the community center where I live. I don’t have many hobbies, as I can’t do certain activities because of health risks, but I enjoy reading, going to the movies, eating out, movie nights at home with my family and visiting my granny and cousins in Chicago.
