Host an Event

Interested in hosting an event to support Hope & Heroes in the fight against childhood cancer and blood disorders? We want to help!

HH_host_event_updateThroughout the year, our donors and volunteers host events that are crucial to the support we provide to the patients, families, doctors, nurses, and staff at Columbia University Medical Center. We consider it a privilege to help anyone who has been touched by pediatric cancer and blood disorders and who wants to give back.

  • Helping plan and execute the event
  • Finding other volunteers to partner with you
