Fundraise Your Way

We believe that every dollar could be THE dollar that uncovers a cure.

You can help by joining an existing fundraising event or starting your own fundraiser!  Not sure where to get started? Here are some simple ways to get involved – pick the one that best suits you.

  • Join us for a cycling challenge or a walk/run: Great Cycle Challenge and Time to Fly.
  • Run for us: join Team CCRF in the 2017 Twin Cities Marathon or 10-Mile. You can also find an endurance event of your own and challenge yourself with health and fundraising goals. For more information, contact Bethany Stavran at
  • Double the meaning of your special day! If you have a birthday, anniversary or other special event coming up, use it as an opportunity to ask your family and friends to donate to fund childhood cancer research. You can do this by setting up a personal fundraising page!

Children’s Cancer Research Fund

Please note: Children’s Cancer Research Fund cannot provide start-up money for fundraisers as we give as much money as possible to support childhood cancer research. We empower researchers to pursue bold ideas through early stage research grants which lead to innovative treatments that attract additional funding.  Every dollar donated to us helps researchers generate $18 in federal funding and other sources.
