Join together with people who care about Akron Children's. Each event in our calendar supports the work we do to improve kids' lives. 

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.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Akron Children’s 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

Community Events

If your group or organization is planning an event and would like Akron Children's to consider participating or sponsoring your event, please complete this Community Event Participation / Sponsorship Request form. We receive numerous requests throughout the year, so we ask for at least 8-weeks’ notice to consider each request.
