Special events can be a fun way to support Hopkins Children’s, its families and patients. We are indebted to the many individuals, corporations, families and communities who have organized and attended a multitude of fundraisers on our behalf.
For some, the events are a way to honor or remember a loved one, for others they help support live-saving research and community programs.
Read our special events policies. Then fill out a special event proposal form and let us know what you have in mind. We’ll be in touch with our appreciation and help you on your way!
How We Can Help
We can offer advice and expertise in event planning; provide the use of Hopkins Children’s banners, brochures or logos; and provide a letter of support on hospital letterhead that states you are working on our behalf. Hospital staff may be able to help with targeted mailings or special promotions for events. Contact our Development Team.
Swimming from the Heart for Pediatric Cardiology
Kade Hannan was among those who swam to help others last summer. In his little turtle-print swimming trunks, the 4-year-old dog-paddled in the shallow end of the Towson Golf and Country Club pool, surrounded by children and adults swimming lap after lap in his name. His sister, Margo, 7, swam 76 laps. By day’s end, they had raised more than $16,000 for the Division of Pediatric Cardiology fund to support Hopkins Children’s cardiac patient families.
