The Faces Of Heroes Circle
Our global team works together to help heal pain and trauma for children around the world.
Elimelech Goldberg (Rabbi G)
Founder and Global Director
Kids Kicking Cancer began in the summer of 1999 when Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg created a pilot program at Children’s Hospital of Michigan (CHM) to demonstrate the power of therapeutic martial arts. Rabbi G., as the children affectionately refer to him, is a first-degree black belt in Choi Kwang Do, as well as a clinical assistant professor in pediatrics at the Wayne State University School of Medicine.
