Signature Events

CancerFree KIDS knows that community support is crucial in ending childhood cancer. We host fundraising events all year to raise money for innovative research projects designed to find gentler, more effective treatments for kids battling cancer.

Night For The Fight
February  24, 2024

Night for the Fight, presented by TQL Foundation, is a unique, 12-hour overnight event that is planned by students, for students. High school students will come together at 5/3 Arena at the University of Cincinnati for a night filled with games, food, fun and inspiration to work toward one goal: knock out childhood cancer. This event not only raises much-needed money for pediatric cancer research, it inspires the next generation to join the battle to eliminate childhood cancer. This past year we raised a total of $251,189 to help fund our mission to knock out childhood cancer! 


Butterfly Walk
May 2024

At CancerFree KIDS we do one thing; we fund innovative research in search of gentler treatments and cures for kids with cancer. Each year at the CancerFree KIDS' Butterfly Walk, families, friends and co-workers form teams to celebrate survivors, remember those for whom a cure did not come soon enough and raise money in support of our kids and our mission to end childhood cancer.

We hope you will join us at our 2024 event, held at the Cincinnati Zoo again this year! Check back soon for details!
