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

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. Register at
