Events for Everyone! And lots of them!

We have something for everyone – from runs, to rides, to silent auctions and plenty in between! Attendees, volunteers, sponsors, donors, promoters – we need all of you to make these events successful! Check out all these great opportunities to show your support!

Sign up for volunteer opportunities – there are plenty now, and more will be added as we get closer to each event!

Become a sponsor – find an event that interests you and check out the sponsorship options.

Naturally, we’d love to see you attend these events and help us raise funds to help kids travel to cancer treatment, so please buy your tickets early (for events that require them), and invite your friends and family to do the same!

We’d also love your help spreading the word! The easiest way to do this is to visit our Facebook pages, find the events you are interested in and like them, mark yourself interested or going, and share them on social media.
