STEP UP. STEP IN. STOP CANCER.
With the help of the local community, we are excited to announce that we have exceeded our $1,000,000 goal and raised over $1.82 million for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Phoenix Children's.
"The outpouring of community support for Step Up. Step In. Stop Cancer. has been truly astounding," said Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer at Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation. "The lives of the more than 300 patients diagnosed with cancer each year at our Hospital have been forever changed thanks to generosity of all who contributed."
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and we fight extra hard for these patients, but it shouldn't stop there. There is still time to Step Up With PCH. You can still make online donations through the end of the year or check out our featured partners section below to find out other ways to support Phoenix Children's.

For the past nine years as a Navy Seal, I have been a protector and warrior for the country we love so dear. With my recent transition from the service I have recognized that I can still fight for the ones that need it the most, the children. Being a father of two little boys has given me perspective that I would never want anything bad to happen to them. I would do anything in my power to take their pain away.
And to me that’s what Phoenix Children's Hospital is doing. They are giving hope to families with children fighting for their lives. I want to use my abilities to STEP UP for these kids and families and give them what they need and deserve, a CHANCE.
By running 100 miles to raise $100,000 I hope to show them that nothing is impossible and that there are people out there willing to fight alongside of them. Please donate to and Step Up with me to Stop Cancer!
