Eli Manning was inspired by the many scout troops, schools and youth sports teams raising money for Tackle Kids Cancer. He created Eli’s Challenge to inspire others. 

With Eli’s support, the community has raised over $500,000 since 2016 through Eli’s Challenge.  In 2018, Eli has once again committed to matching community donations.  This year, he pledged an unprecedented $200,000 in support. Every dollar raised funds research and patient care programs at the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health.  Join Eli and the New York Giants to Tackle Kids Cancer.
