Host your own fundraiser

Host your own fundraiser

Each year at Cook Children's, fundraising events benefiting patients and families are held across our community. Oftentimes patient and family journeys inspire grateful families to "pay it forward". Other times it is the passion for Cook Children's that gathers friends, family, neighbors or coworkers together in planning an event. Whatever your reason for planning a fundraiser you are making an impact on the lives of children and families and we could not fulfill our Promise to improve the health of every child in our region.

Year after year, the community pours their time and energy into events that range from lemonade stands to tennis tournaments; from fun-runs to acoustic concerts. You as the host can leave behind a legacy, contribute to a specific program or department that is special to you or simply benefit the greatest need here at Cook Children's. This is your event and your time to give back. Let us help you get started.
