Treatment for childhood cancers can often last years, which takes a toll on the lives and finances of families.  That's why we at BoxRun also raise money for family support initiatives. 

Our Cause

The last few decades have seen enormous progress in treating and curing childhood cancers.  But there is still a long way to go, to save lives and to help the young ones live normal lives well into adulthood. 

On May 8th, 2014, BoxRun started fundraising activities. Our founder, 3-time Olympian and Commonwealth Champion boxer Mike Strange ran a marathon a day for 94 days from St. John's, Newfoundland, to his hometown of Niagara Falls, Ontario. Since then, BoxRun has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research and family support services.
