Children’s Health Campaign partners

Children’s Cancer Research Fund
Children’s Cancer Research Fund has teamed up with the University of Minnesota Foundation to help find a cure for pediatric cancers and other childhood diseases faster by pooling their efforts. The two organizations have worked together publicly and privately for nearly 30 years to combat pediatric cancer. Since 1981, grassroots efforts led by CCRF have resulted in more than $60 million being donated to the University for leading-edge pediatric cancer research and related diseases.

Vikings Children’s Fund
The Vikings Children’s Fund has supported hundreds of child-related organizations across Vikings country since the fund’s inception in 1978. In that time, it has donated nearly $10 million to child- and family-related causes, including more than $5 million to the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Department of Pediatrics for breakthrough childhood disease research and community outreach programs such as the Vikings Fitness Playbook to tackle childhood obesity. Learn more about the Vikings Fitness Playbook program.

Kidz1stFund™
When Florida State University football coach Jimbo Fisher and his wife, Candi, learned that their son Ethan has a rare, life-threatening blood disorder called Fanconi anemia, they felt compelled to take action that would help not only Ethan but other children, too. So they established the Kidz1stFund™, which has already raised more than $1 million for Fanconi anemia research at the University of Minnesota. Watch a video and read more about their fundraising efforts.
