About KiKA

“KiKa (Children cancer free Foundation) was founded in 2002 by Frits Hirschstein and Maarten Stoopendaal. The occasion was the request of two well-known cancer specialists to see if there could come more money available for research into childhood cancer. The two oncologists felt that there was much more possible in the field of child cancer. The cure rate was already holding at about 70% for quite some time, while in the meantime there was a lot of new research possible. ” (Source: Run for Kika) Click here for more information
