We need your help! Whether you can assist financially or donate your time, talents, or in-kind donations, your contribution will be used to make a difference in the lives of teens facing cancer and their families. No gift is too large or too small. Please consider a financial gift or sponsorship. We can make cancer history together.



Your donations will go directly to help fund state-of-the-art research that has and will continue to save lives. We have pledged the proceeds from Hudson Heroes fundraising activities to three of the top cancer research initiatives in the country:

In addition to helping save lives, as a Hudson Heroes sponsor, you will have numerous opportunities to reinforce or shape your brand image among your prospects, customers and community. Just as importantly, companies that are known for giving back usually rank high on the list of Best Companies to Work for. Your support is a great way to demonstrate your company’s core values to your employees!
