Face-to-face contact opportunities:
Over the years, KidsCan has hosted many face-to-face contact opportunities.  These events are designed to bring together families fighting pediatric cancer.  If you have a child with cancer receiving primary treatment in Minnesota or recently out of treatment, please sign up.

Upcoming Events

Dads of kids with cancer are invited to join other dads for a night out at Pinstripes in Edina.  Bring your significant other and enjoy a night of bowling, food and fun!

Join us on Sunday, April 28, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

3849 Gallagher Drive, Edina, MN

Bowling, shoes, appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages provided by KidsCan.  Dads of kids with cancer (or kids off treatment) along with their significant other are invited.

Please RSVP by Monday, April 22, as we need to give a head count to Pinstripes.

Past Events

  • Parade Participation: A great way for families to get to know one another, families join in local parades during the summer.  Having our kids on parade floats is fun and great for their self-esteem; it also raises awareness about pediatric cancer.
  • Parent Nights Out: A great way for parents to take a break and bond with others with kids with cancer.
  • Workshops & Retreats: On occasion, KidsCan conducts workshops and retreats for parents, caregivers and siblings of pediatric cancer patients.
  • Blood Drives: In concert with the American Red Cross and friends around Minnesota, KidsCan helps organize and facilitate blood drives.  We know firsthand the role that generous blood donations play in the treatment of pediatric oncology patients.
