The Heroes Circle is a global healing and wellness initiative inspired by the children of Kids Kicking Cancer.
Our non-contact, martial arts based program gives kids the tools to self-regulate when they encounter stress or are experiencing a pain crisis. The program teaches meditative breathing, mindfulness and movement, engaging children’s imaginations while teaching them how to work through overwhelming emotions like pain, fear and anger.
At the Heroes Circle, our work is concentrated around three strategic areas:
- Pain and stress management for pediatric patients
- Creating resilience and support for otherwise healthy children
- Inspiring healing and well-being in adults, who thank the children for their instruction and inspiration
Our evidence-based techniques are delivered in person and virtually throughout hospitals, medical facilities, outpatient centers, home visits and schools across the United States and globally.
Our goal with your help is to aggressively grow this program to empower one million children to lower their pain and stress.
HOW WE WORK
We partner with hospitals, medical care facilities, therapeutic camps and school administration to successfully implement our programming, track progress and troubleshoot challenges. Without our global network of dedicated partners and our trained Martial Arts Therapists, the work of the Heroes Circle would not be possible.
