SMU Powerful play 2020

Powerful Play 2020 @ SMU was a GREAT success!

Our goal of harnessing the Power of Play by getting kids involved in raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer was exactly what we did at Powerful Play 2020 at SMU! The Student Athlete SAAC hosted an amazing event that raised over $17,000 and created tons of sMiles!  Check out the link on the top of the page to see the news segment.

Who We Are

We are a group of people who know the challenges a childhood cancer diagnosis can bring.  Research is how we drive change and improvements for the future. We must always be 'moving forward' for better treatments, cures and long term quality of life for survivors. We will achieve our goals by harnessing the power of the most natural childhood pastime: Play.

We Believe:

We can harness the Power of Play to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research.  

We can create sMiles for families in treatment for childhood cancer. 

We can support the long term treatment of childhood cancer survivors.
