About Us

TeenPower4Life is a national movement of teens who devote their time, energy and abilities to bring about positive and extraordinary change in the the world.

OUR MISSIONOur mission is to create awareness of pediatric cancer and leukemia, to raise funds to support research to find a cure, and to empower teenagers through collective action. Together we can win the fight against diseases that destroy the lives of children and teenagers throughout the world. Together, we can make a difference.

OUR GOALOur goal is to have 1 million participants walking together in TeenPower4Life Walkathons across the United States this year.

THE CAUSEEach year, thousands of children & teenagers in the United States are diagnosed with cancer or leukemia, and 1 of every 4 children with cancer will die within 5 years of diagnosis. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States among children & teenagers 15 years of age and younger. The primary beneficiary of this year’s TeenPower4Life Walkathon is the National Children’s Leukemia Foundation (NCLF), a leading 501©3 in the fight against cancer and leukemia worldwide. The NCLF provides programs that benefit children and families battling leukemia and cancer, and supports sophisticated medical research directed toward eradicating leukemia, cancer and other life-threatening diseases throughout the world. Funds raised through the TeenPower4Life Walkathon this year will go to fund the NCLF Biomedical Cancer Research Center. To find out more information about the NCLF and the NCLF Biomedical Cancer Research Center, click herewww.leukemiafoundation.org
