Sunrise Association

Our Impact on the Pediatric Cancer Communities We Serve

Our Values

  • FUN IS MANDATORY Sunrise is children just being children – having fun playing and laughing together. We want every child, even if they can only attend for one day, to have the best day ever!
  • INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY Sunrise is a worldwide organization made up of people from every walk of life who recognize and embrace the particular journey that our children are on. Sunrise actively seeks to create inclusive communities – whether at camp or in the hospitals – that celebrate diversity and equity among all our children and staff while respecting both the distinctions and the commonalities that bind us together as a human family.
  • HOPE & HEALING While we cannot cure cancer, Sunrise can provide the healing of the heart as well as the hope that each child can experience the true meaning of childhood.

Our Mission

The mission of the Sunrise Association is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings worldwide. This mission is accomplished through the creation and oversight of welcoming, inclusive Summer Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.

Our Vision

We work towards a world where cancer will not be the defining factor in a child’s life; where children and families navigating the difficult world of pediatric cancer can find hope, love and an extra ray of sunshine; where cultural diversity is embraced and every child is celebrated for who they are and for the unique gifts they bring into the world.
