Fundraising by Friends

Thanks to the efforts of many people throughout Iowa, CCC can continue to provide families affected by childhood cancer opportunities that encourage relationships and strengthen community. Third-party or Fundraising by Friends events are hosted by groups throughout the year.

While CCC is a beneficiary, these events are run almost entirely by other groups. There are many ways to get involved in a Fundraising by Friends event. Events range from car shows to golf tournaments to grill-outs. Start your own event, or check out some partners below!

If you’re interested in hosting a Fundraising by Friends third-party event benefiting Children’s Cancer Connection, please download the Third-Party Toolkit below and submit the event application.

Please fill out the form in the toolkit, and submit it to the CCC Events Manager.
