Fly Free

Our Fly Free program (for ages 4 – 18) aims to help children affected by cancer realize their artistic dreams. We celebrate the journeys of participants both as artists and survivors, giving them the full celebrity treatment and an encouraging platform to showcase their work. Every child gets to stand in the spotlight: aspiring models walk their first runway, singers perform for a large audience, and artists show their work in galleries.

Fly Free launches our more mature artists into the New York City creative community as budding professionals. We connect them with established artists in their respective disciplines and provide them with information about grants, contests, publishers, and more.

Alumni of our Fly Free program have gone on to start their own bakeries, release singles, and have their art shown at New York’s premier galleries. Most importantly, we believe that the arts not only help children become cancer-free, but remain healthy and happy throughout their entire lives.
