Walk With Sally’s mission is to provide support to children whose parents or siblings have cancer.  Through our mentoring program we hope to provide these children with the immediate support they need when dealing with the trauma that cancer can often cause.  As these children grow into young adults, it is our hope that through our programs, Walk With Sally can instill a sense of leadership and community engagement.  Through our Fred’s Fund - Young Leaders Scholarship, we aim to provide these young adults with the opportunity to thrive as leaders in their community by giving them financial assistance to continue their education.
