In 2016, Eli challenged the community to step up and help him Tackle Kids Cancer.  The response was phenomenal, with thousands of supporters surpassing Eli’s goal and raising over $150,000 in community donations. When combined with Eli's matching gift, the campaign raised over $250,000 in its first year.

This year, Eli has increased his matching gift to $150,000 and is challenging the community once again to match his contribution, doubling your gift's impact. Each gift supports the dedicated clinicians and researchers at the Children’s Cancer Institute, and brings us closer to the cure.

Thank you for taking Eli's Challenge!
