C2C was conceived in 2015 by teenagers desperate to help their classmates who were diagnosed with rare (and very scary) PEDIATRIC CANCERS. All were shocked to learn that Pediatric Cancer receives only 4% of allocated government funding for cancer research.
The kids shared a passion for music, so they created this now-annual benefit concert. In addition to the talented student performers, our Special Guest Artists have included OneRepublic, Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol), Zac Barnett (American Authors), Magic Giant, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and Chris Martin (Coldplay).
To date, C2C has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund important clinical trials through the kids’ oncologist, Dr. Noah Federman, Director of the Pediatric Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma Program at UCLA.
