  • Des Moines Camping the Night Away

    Each year, Children’s Cancer Connection hosts an evening of awards, drinks, delicious food and auctions filled with items for everyone. The proceeds go directly to programming for children facing childhood cancer and their families. This event allows us to continue supporting our families at little-to-no cost, so join us in supporting deserving families.

    Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our 2018, 30th year celebration as we raised over $45,000! We hope to see you again at next year’s event, so keep checking back for next year’s date in early 2019!
