Our 26 Years of History

The Kelsey Charity Run, Inc (a 501(c)(3) charitable organization) was organized to raise funds to help pay the extraordinary medical expenses not covered by health insurance for children and their families fighting cancer and other life threatening diseases.

The Kelsey Fund was originally organized by the Lincoln Hose Company No. 4, of the Somerville Fire Department in May 1996. Retired Bridgewater Police Chief Richard Voorhees and friends organized the “Ride for Kelsey” as a fund raiser for the Kelsey Fund.

Over the last 25 years, the Kelsey Charity Run has raised over 1 million dollars, including generous donations from corporations, charitable organizations and the public. In addition the Kelsey Charity Run has earned a very rare endorsement from New Jersey Motorcycle Events.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds goes to children and their families to help fight Cancer and other life threatening diseases. The Kelsey Charity Run, Inc. also supports the Somerset County Food Bank, The Santa Toy Run, and many other local community charities.

 

 

About Kelsey

13497743_10154217904419906_263773949020825551_o_edited.jpg

Kelsey Kirchner, at age 2, was diagnosed with a rare form of central nervous system cancer called Neuroblastoma. At the time of her diagnosis, Kelsey’s prognosis was poor and her chances of survival were slim. After years of experimental treatments at Memorial Sloane-Kettering in New York City, Kelsey was finally diagnosed as cancer-free. 

 

Kelsey still makes regular visits to Memorial Sloan-Kettering in NYC for check ups and treatments. As Kelsey and her family’s needs lessened, the KCR reached out to other families in the area fighting Cancer and other life threatening diseases.
