Sports Day for Kids is a free event hosted by Wipeout Cancer for kids living with cancer and their families to participate in team sports that they may not be able to with their existing treatment and care regimes. We provide a safe and fun environment for participants to learn and practice with sports programs at local colleges. This program is open to kids (ages 5 to 17 years old) living with cancer and their immediate family.
Our inaugural event co-hosted with Cancer CAREpoint was held on February 27, 2016 with the SJSU Football Team at Spartan Stadium. Each participant in the program had a chance to meet and greet several football players on the team and got to rotate through different skills stations and activities. At the end of the event, participants enjoyed snacks and social time with the team with lots of photo opportunities.
Wipeout Cancer is working on events with the Santa Clara University Women’s Basketball team and Stanford Women’s Gymnastics later this year.
