Wonderful women, who lived in Millie Flamm’s neighborhood, wanted to do something to help her and her family so they organized a run to raise money and show support for Millie’s family. The first Millie’s Princess Run took place while she was in the hospital undergoing a bone marrow transplant. It was a huge success and was a testament to these amazing women.
The run was such a success that the foundation was established by this group of women and a second run was planned for the following year to benefit other families with a child fighting cancer. Millie was excited to be able to attend the second Princess Run, but unfortunately, after a three and a half year battle with leukemia, passed away just a week before the run. With Millie on the hearts and minds of everyone at the race, it was a powerful event of friends, families, and neighbors coming together in support, and immediately after requests began coming in to hold races in other locations.

We now hold an annual Princess Run in Salt Lake City each June to help families with a child fighting cancer. They have been a huge success in helping local families lift the financial burden childhood cancer brings on an already devastating situation. We have also been able to bring a new found hope to these children and their families as they see friends, family, and their community rally around them in support.
We are currently sponsoring two annual parties for children with cancer, the Princess Ball and the Superhero Bash, both of which are designed specifically for the entertainment of children with cancer and their families. We also team up with schools, businesses, and other organizations that want to raise funds and hope for children and families.
Millie’s Princess Foundation is constantly seeking ways to partnership with communities to help families in need. The Flamm family is grateful that this amazing foundation bears Millie’s name and takes care of these wonderful children that deserve the same love and support that carried her.
