Here's how it works:

Step One

Sign up to organize an event

Start by submitting your general information so we can talk and get your online event page created.

You’ll have access to a St. Baldrick’s Special Events staff member to serve as your main resource for fundraising. Ask us questions, customize your page, and gather your Core Volunteer Committee!

Step Two

Promote, Recruit, and Fundraise!

Get the word out on social media, send out emails far and wide, and shout from the rooftops!

Share your passion for the cause and fundraising goal. Inspire others to donate and be a part of our mission.

Step Three

Host your event and make an impact for kids with cancer

Talk with your St. Baldrick’s Special Events staff member to brainstorm, prep for your fundraiser, and make the day stress-free.

Take a deep breath and be proud of all you’ve raised for childhood cancer research! The more money we raise, the more research that becomes possible.
