All our participants enjoy a fun event as well as opportunities to win prizes for fundraising, completing activities, inviting others, and spreading the word on social media.

What the Money Supports

Funds raised through Arnie’s March Boston benefit the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) Cancer Center. Through your support, you are helping to advance innovative research projects aimed at better understanding and treating childhood cancers, as well as provide a myriad of supportive care programs that help make cancer treatment a little bit easier for our young patients and their families. Dr. Howard Weinstein, chief of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, and his colleagues are exploring the genetic mechanisms behind tumor growth in several different childhood cancers and identifying new targets for more effective, less toxic therapies. They are also studying long-term effects of treatments and providing ongoing care to adult survivors of childhood cancers.

Why We March

Because the children treated at MassGeneral Hospital for Children Cancer Center deserve the best care close to home.

Through Arnie's March Boston, you can help support the care provided by MassGeneral Hospital for Children Cancer Center as well as their research efforts to fight childhood cancer.
