What is Strut for Kids?
Strut for Kids, a 501(c)(3), is Wilmington’s only nonprofit solely dedicated to supporting local children in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties on the pediatric cancer journey. We are committed to supporting these kids and their families from the time of diagnosis, during treatment, and beyond.

Our Mission
Strut for Kids mission is to provide financial assistance to families in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties who have a child diagnosed with cancer.

Strut for Kids vision is to provide hope, love, and support to every family touched by cancer in the greater Wilmington, NC area.

Will you help us “Fight for them & fight with them?”

Our Story
In 2009, a group of moms sat around a kitchen table to plan the first Cardinal Strut Race. They made a promise that their friends’ sons—Bryson Parry and Jakob Hatton — who passed away from childhood cancer, would never be forgotten. Like all little boys, Bryson and Jakob loved to run and play so the initial funds raised from the Cardinal Strut Race were used to build a community track and memorial playground at Holly Tree Elementary.

Six years later, in 2015, this same group of moms had the good fortune to meet Owen Preston, who had recently been diagnosed with childhood cancer. Owen was a local expert at catching frogs, eating french fries and fighting one courageous battle with cancer.

Watching Owen and his family battle cancer inspired these ladies to support other local families whose children were diagnosed with cancer, which led to the formation of Strut for Kids as a 501(c)(3) in 2016.

Strut for Kids continues to raise funds to support local childhood cancer families through annual events like the Cardinal Strut Race and the Owen Preston Bingo Night.
