Derby for Kids

The Fifth Annual Derby for Kids raises awareness and funds for Precision Oncology in Pediatric Brain Cancer Research. The project brings together multiple institutions including Children's Hospital of Michigan, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, Hurley Medical Center, and Wayne State University, in effort to improve outcomes for children with a brain cancer diagnosis.

The Children's Foundation has committed to a $592,000 grant to fund Precision Oncology in Pediatric Brain Cancer Research. To date, Derby For Kids has raised over $423,000 for this ground breaking research.

Your support provides hope for children like Lakelyn.

The Fifth Annual Derby for Kids will raise funds in support of a multi-institutional research project to advance and improve pediatric brain cancer treatment for children like Lakelyn, who at three-months-old was diagnosed with Grade IV Glioblastoma. Her journey has been long and one that no child should have to endure, but now at nearly two years old, Lakelyn is responding well to treatment and doctors are optimistic about her prognosis. Learn more about Lakelyn’s story, here.
