Time to Fly
Join Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Phalen Regional Park, Saint Paul or fundraise as a virtual participant!
Raise. Walk. Cure.
Join a community whose efforts are revolutionizing the way childhood cancer is treated. Each year Time to Fly brings together an inspiring community affected by childhood cancer. It allows them a space to connect, increase awareness for childhood cancer and raise money to fund research through peer-to-peer fundraising.
Every school day, 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer. That’s more than the size of two classrooms. I think one child diagnosed with cancer is one child too many.
That’s why I’m joining the race against childhood cancer by participating in Time to Fly at Phalen Park in St. Paul, Minnesota this September. The funds I raise will support Children's Cancer Research Fund and leading-edge research that will lead to better treatments and ultimately, life-saving cures for children.
And you can help me reach the finish line by making a donation or joining me on race day.
**Together, we can help doctor’s say “we have an idea” when other doctor’s say “There’s nothing else we can do.”
**Together, we’ve already helped researchers make progress toward improving Hodgkin lymphoma treatment, creating better drugs for graft v. host disease, bettering leukemia therapies and much more.
**Together, we can create a world free of childhood cancer.
Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up. Thank you for supporting life-saving research and the families and children who battle cancer daily.

About Time to Fly
Time to Fly is one of Children’s Cancer Research Fund’s signature fundraising events. Each year Time to Fly brings together an inspiring community affected by childhood cancer. It allows them a space to connect, increase awareness for childhood cancer and raise money to fund research through peer-to-peer fundraising. Time to Fly relies on enthusiastic and dedicated supporters who fundraise for many months leading up to the event in September. Since its inception in 2003, Time to Fly has raised over $2.3 million dollars.
This 5k walk and 1k Kid’s Fun Run is held each September to celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. All participants are encouraged to fundraise to support the brightest scientists whose ideas are making the greatest impact for children with cancer.
The event consists of a full morning of family-friendly activities, a chance for group photos, a 5k community walk, a 1K Kid’s Fun Run and a short program to celebrate super fundraisers, while also sharing stories of hope and healing.
Time to Fly 2018 is Sat., Sept. 29 at Phalen Regional Park in Saint Paul, Minn. If you are not able to attend in person, all supporters are encouraged to engage with Time to Fly by becoming a virtual fundraiser.
