Team Kesem runDisney Application 2023-2024

Kesem is excited to partner with runDisney again this year. At Kesem, we are committed to creating a world where every child who has a parent with a cancer diagnosis or has lost a parent to cancer is never alone. We support these children through and beyond their parent’s cancer with free, fun-filled creative programs and a lasting community. Kesem is incredibly grateful to our generous Team Kesem fundraisers, who join us for endurance events around the country, and make it possible for us to serve more kids.

A Kesem name is a nickname campers choose in order to hold a fun identity at camp and create distance from the stress of coping with a parent's cancer. If you don't have a Kesem name already, feel free to choose one or leave it blank and give it more thought later! - Cheddar
