Over 400 children and their families are invited for a day of free fun, music, and adventures. In 2018, Family Fun Day will be at the world-famous Bronx Zoo. This event will feature clowns, face-painters, games, art activities, build-a-bear, and so much more. Every guest will also get a VIP Zoo pass to enjoy after the party ends.

About Making Headway
The discovery that a child has a brain or spinal cord tumor changes everything. The future becomes uncertain; families struggle with anxiety and fear. A strong medical team can help a family take its first crucial steps forward. But reconstructing a life and nurturing a family devastated by the emotional and physical demands of treatment and its aftermath go beyond what a medical environment can provide. That’s where Making Headway comes in.
