Kings Road School Heroes
As part of the Madison Schools Day of Service on May 24 th , Kings Road School will be
participating in a satellite walk to support the children of The Valerie Fund in our community
and beyond. Our students will be participating in this event to raise awareness, and money for
children with cancer and blood disorders treated at the eight Valerie Fund Centers located in
pediatric hospitals throughout the NJ, NY and metro Philadelphia areas.
The Valerie Fund provides support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer
and blood disorders. They provide each patient with a team of social workers, psychologists and child life specialists that support them throughout their journey, which eases the burden so their family can concentrate on healing.
The support provided goes beyond the medical, to include the Valerie Fund Scholarship
Program, and the Emergency Fund for Valerie Fund families to help bridge the gap for basic
needs. They also fund therapeutic camp experiences with Camp Happy Times for children with cancer since 1982, and camps for children with sickle cell, thalassemia, and other blood
