About Us

Wit You Against Childhood Cancer provides opportunities for the Philadelphia community to show support and love to families among us who are battling childhood cancer -- and to give those families hope, financial and nutritional support to help them beat cancer.

Wit You was founded in 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic that had everyone thinking about their family, friends, neighbors -- their community. We were inspired by the desire to do more for  Lou, our Vice President, and Dana, our Purpose Committee Co-Chair, when their son began his battle with Neuroblastoma in 2018. Today, he’s in remission thanks to incredible care and treatment, and also the community of friends, family, nonprofits, medical professionals, and others that inspire kids battling cancer and their families to keep fighting. 

In 2021, we are hosting a weekend of events on September 24-25: 

  • The Wit You Rally is a night of live music by the Philadelphia School of Rock, delicious food from FUDI and pizza from Mix Bar & Grill, and drinks from Stateside Vodka, Crime & Punishment Brewery, and Yards Brewing Company at the Smith Memorial Playground, featuring its historic 60-foot wooden slide!

  • The Wit You Ride is a scenic, 100-mile bike ride from Philadelphia to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. With course markings, multiple aid stations and optional rest stops, this grassroots event is the perfect blend of adventure and rider support.
