We are powered by a super robot named Cheekee that embodies the values of kindness, resilience, and joy. Cheekee helps tamariki with different abilities realise their own superpowers, and in turn, Cheekee becomes stronger through the power of their collective spirit.
Living life and having fun isn't a crazy concept but it's something adults forget to do along the way. A child in treatment always takes fun and finds happiness. Lox and his friends continue to show us the light and remind us to have fun while we're here!
We're a little bit cool and a whole lot agile! Cheekee Hero is a grassroots whānau-led charity organisation filled with tough caring cookies. We're navigating our own way through childhood cancer and because of this we possess a deep empathy that enables us to make decisive impactful decisions.
