Welcome to
SQUASH OUT CANCER

Join us as a community to make a massive difference for pediatric cancer.

September 28, 2024, MSQUASH SONO

Every year, an estimated 300,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. This total could be lower, if all children received adequate care.  Unfortunately, childhood cancer research is consistently underfunded. This total could be lower, if all children received adequate care. Unfortunatey, childhood cancer research is consistenly underfunded. 

That's why we launched “Squash Out Cancer”, dedicated to rallying young squash players and their families in the fight against pediatric cancer. This September, we launch a series of squash events, auctions and activities to make a difference with you, by raising vital funds for pediatric cancer research. Together, we squash out cancer, one match at a time, as we strive to create a brighter future for children battling this disease.

Sign up for the Inaugural “Squash Out Cancer” Day on September 28, 2024!  Become a team captain and recruit 7 players to join your team. Add your team by September 1, 2024. Teams will be playing in a team tournament from 9am-12:30pm and 1:30-4:30pm.

All proceeds this year will support the doctors and scientists at MSK Kids, the pediatric program at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC.  This year, nearly 16,000 children, adolescents, and young adults in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer. MSK Kids treats more of these patients than any other center in the country.

WHY

Commited to making a difference

MSQUASH Founders Shaun Moxham and Katline Cauwels have long held the aspiration of establishing a fundraising campaign to generate revenue for cancer research. "We both have lost parents, family and friends to this disease and want to make a change." Every day we put our heart and soul in working with children on and off the court. We want to make a difference exactly with those children, for other children.

We quickly discovered our community shares more than ever the passion to make a difference for one of the least funded cancer research areas, pediatric cancer. It didn't take long to build a team. And here we are now, TOGETHER, young and older, to SQUASH OUT CANCER.

WHEN

September 2024 is Pediatric Cancer Month

No better way to start our inaugural SQUASH OUT CANCER fundraiser than September. Throughout the month,  we will be adding even more products to our auction, we will be running courtsprints for cancer, and we will play our hearts out during our SQUASH OUT CANCER DAY on SEPTEMBER 28, 2024. If you or a loved one have been affected by cancer and have felt hope-less, or scared, now is the time to change that feeling.
