Molly's Events

The Molly Thompson Memorial Fund is a local fundraising organization established In memory of Molly Michelle Thompson, a four-year-old girl from Tigard Oregon who battled a terminal liver cancer for two years. During her four years of life, Through her spontaneity, acceptance and love for life, Molly taught those around her to laugh through sorrow, play through fear and live through pain. Molly gracefully died on October 4, 1998. It is in the spirit of her life and death that her family & friends have continued Miles from Molly so that other children, like her, will be able to laugh and play through their tough times.

On October 4th, 1998, Molly led what would be our final talk together before she closed her eyes for the last time. As we cradled her in our arms, Molly whispered words that would become the driving force behind her legacy… “Mommy, Daddy, please take care of my hospital friends”…

The forefront of our healing journey has been Miles from Molly, our annual bike, walk and run community festival. We’ve enjoyed organizing this community event for the past 5 years and have had the privilege of raising more than $100,000.000 for the programs of the Children’s Cancer Association. We funded the Music RX, Dream Catcher Wishes and Pediatric Chemo Pal programs, Molly’s favorites. The Children’s Cancer Association continues to be an inspiring organization that helps thousands of families like ours.  
In continuing Molly’s legacy of love and laughter, we turn our attention to the Emanuel Children’s Hospital.
