Thank YOU for helping to Whip Pediatric Cancer!

"The girls gained so many skills from participating in the Whip Pediatric Cancer event. They wrote speeches and practiced presenting before going before the student council to ask to partner as a combined school. From there, they approached the school principal to pitch the idea. Posters, money collection, class visits, teaching the dance to others, laughing, patience, math and organizational skills, empathy, as well as the pride of it all coming together on the day of the event.  As they say 'priceless'."

Munsey Park Kindness Club

"Fundraising for Whip Pediatric Cancer aligned with our commitment to community service while promoting wellness for children with cancer. The whole experience of dancing the Nae Nae, custodial staff obtaining a cherry picker to video tape about 1,000 children from an aerial view, technology staff printing out 3 foot high letters kids held up to spell Whip Pediatric Cancer... we all felt blessed.  The buzz and excitement around the Whip Pediatric Cancer Challenge was infectious. We felt united toward a serious cause but we were having fun and helping others, which helped us to bond and feel good."

Angela Jardinella - Special Education, Crossroads South Middle School

"The Whip Pediatric Cancer Challenge brought much excitement to East Broadway. Students, staff and parents were happy to participate in the video as well as raising money to bring an awareness for pediatric cancer. East Broadway unfortunately had and has several students who suffer with cancer and we know first hand how devastating this is for the family and school community. We hope that the Whip Pediatric Cancer Challenge continues to grow so that one day there will be a cure."

Jeanmarie Wink - Principal, East Broadway Elementary

"We are a small nursery school with a huge, generous heart!  When we learned about Jordan's WhipPediatric Cancer challenge to raise money for pediatric cancer, it coincided with our own school's "Pay It Forward" awareness. Everyone - staff, children, parents, grandparents - came together as one to fight against pediatric cancer. Our entire school community felt like one!!! We raised close to $2,000 and we plan to continue to do "The Whip" each year so that a pediatric cancer cure can quickly be found!!!!"

Ellice and Ilene - Huntington Jewish Center Nursery School

"Westhampton Beach High School's Broadcast Journalism students kicked off the challenge at our school last year. The teachers followed suit and completed the Whip Pediatric Cancer challenge at the school's pep rally. The challenge was meaningful for all involved and created unity and awareness among the faculty and students at the school and made a memory that will last them a lifetime."

"It was an honor to participate in such a worthy cause, and our school enthusiastically rose to the challenge. Over two hundred families attended and made donations to help find a cure for pediatric cancer."

Andrea Kosofsky

"Such an amazing cause! Our son Kamron has been battling cancer for the last 6 months. Programs like this are uplifting and show these kids how much support they truly have. How the community rally around them. Keep up the incredible efforts!"

Kristen Isom-winfield

"In just an hour at the ball park tonight we raised $102 with our extra Gold Hearts from school. Thank you for all you do, it's making a difference! Whip Pediatric Cancer!!"
