Last year I met Len Forkas, whose passion and commitment to help sick children inspired me to run. It turns out I'm pretty fast for my size.

Hopecam helps children diagnosed with cancer overcome one of their many unexpected challenges - isolation. Through technology, kids with cancer can connect with their classmates for an average cost of $1,000 per sick child.

I'm asking for donations so that kids can avoid loneliness and continue their friendships and schoolwork during cancer treatment. My dream is to form a starting five of Hopecam kids with a six-month goal of raising $50,000 that will change the lives of over 1,000 children - 50 sick kids and their classmates. Here is how I will lead this team to victory:

Between March and October of 2019, my small but mighty legs will run 5K races in as many as 10 states. My 4 feet / 45 pound frame will run 20 competitions for a total of 100 kilometers. How can you join our team? You can inspire me to run through donations that will go exclusively to Hopecam. My average time is about 25 minutes for a 5K, which is about 8 minutes per mile. But, if your donations motivate me to run faster, I might shatter records while helping others. Wouldn't that be cool?

Together we can give an assist to less fortunate children during a difficult time. I have the speed. Sick kids have a need. Let's do a good deed! Please donate to Matteo Runs and Hopecam!





Hopecam, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has a simple yet life-saving mission: to reduce the loneliness felt by young cancer patients as they undergo treatment.

We provide tablet computers and other forms of technology that enable homebound children to stay connected with their classmates, friends and family. The learning and laughter lift the spirits of these children and help them stay positive during a difficult time.

As Hopecam celebrates its 15th anniversary, we take pride in connecting over 1,800 children to 40,000 classmates in the U.S. and abroad. Ninety percent of the students helped by Hopecam attend Title 1 schools.

Our goal is to transform the lives of many more children with cancer. But we cannot do it alone.
