Plan a Fundraiser

Celebrate a successful surgery. Honor a loved one's courageous battle with a debilitating illness. Gather your friends, classmates, colleagues and relatives, and host a virtual fundraiser for Akron Children's. We work with groups of all sizes and with a variety of ideas.

Community Events

If your group or organization is planning a virtual event and would like Akron Children's Hospital to attend, please complete this Outreach Request Form. We participate in numerous health fairs, festivals and events throughout the year, so we ask for 8-weeks’ notice to consider and plan each request. 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Akron Children’s Hospital will be reviewing all initiatives being held on behalf of the hospital to ensure they meet with Centers for Disease Control and Ohio Department of Health guidelines. Organizers must familiarize themselves with these guidelines as well as complete a fundraising event application to ensure the health and safety of the community. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Wheeler at

Kids' Crew, Mahoning Valley
