Hi, I'm Matteo, a healthy 11-year-old from Vienna, Virginia. When I was seven I decided to use my love for running to help kids with cancer. So far I've run about 100 different 5K and 10K races in about 20 states and raised over $100,000 along the way.

Matteo Lambert is a 11-year-old who founded Off The Charts after running over 125 miles in support of kids with cancer in 2019. By running 35 races in 15 states and Canada, Matteo raised more than $65,000 - enough to connect 70 courageous kids battling cancer to their classmates through technology provided by Hopecam. You can learn more about Matteo's 2019 journey here.
Matteo did not let the pandemic stop him. After making running videos near his home in 2020 to inspire kids with cancer, he returned to the race course in May, 2021 and ran over 100 miles of races in a little over six months. He still dons a cape that features the name and photo of a child bravely battling cancer. He then makes an inspiring video and "returns the SuperPowers" by sending the cape and other items to the true heroes - kids battling cancer.
Judy Laufman has battled cancer on three different occasions. She's still outpacing it. Judy has battled lymphoma like a champion, and she's covering the map to show how it's done. On a quest to run a half-marathon in every U.S. state, Judy is currently at #28 with the completion of a race in Wyoming. Youth need adult mentors, and there is no greater shining example of resilience than Judy. Here motto is "Every Mile Is A Gift".
Judy is a key contributor to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Team In Training" Program. Judy also pairs up with Matteo to form a powerful one-two cancer-fighting running brigade.
