In an article he wrote for USA Today, Gerard says about his recent charity efforts with Kids Kicking Cancer:

Kids Kicking CancerEvery contribution makes a difference. Along with my support of Haiti, I’ve had a long-standing involvement with the charity Kids Kicking Cancer. Started by Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg — a martial arts black belt who lost his first child to leukemia — KKC teaches kids with cancer or cancer-related illnesses the healing, mind-body themes of martial arts training. They learn methods of relaxation, meditation, pain management, deep breathing and karate — all of which provide them with a sense of purpose, teamwork and unity. The children I meet as part of my work with KKC are such an inspiration to me. I get so much more back from these kids than I give. The power, the strength and the sheer joy in these kids — many fighting for their lives and in chronic pain — is incredible.
