Our National Expansion Goals

By 2026, we aim to achieve the following milestones:

15 Day Camps

We plan to establish 15 day camps in locations across the country, providing immersive, fun-filled experiences for children with cancer and their siblings. There camps offer a supportive environment where kids can just be kids, surrounded by caring staff and engaging activities.

52 Sunrise on Wheels Programs

Our innovative Sunrise on Wheels program takes the joy of camp directly to children awaiting treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. With your support, we will expand this program to reach 52 hospitals, bringing smiles and laughter to children during their hospital stay.

Virtual Programming

Through virtual programming, we can extend our impact beyond physical locations. By reaching 200 hospitals with our virtual programs, we ensure that children across the nation can access the joys of Sunrise, no matter where they are receiving treatment.

Making an Impact

Through our national expansion efforts, we aim to positively impact the lives of 63,300 children and their families by 2026. With your generous contributions, we can provide moments of respite, create lasting memories, and empower children to experience the simple pleasures of childhood despite their medical challenges.
