a community of hope

for Families with Childhood Cancer


Calling Cyclists of ALL Abilities!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and with the cancellation of Cycle Oregon, Ride For A Child may have hit a bump in the road, but we're still gearing up for another amazing year of fundraising, one where EVERYONE is invited to join! 

Do something fun, healthy, and safe while supporting families facing childhood cancer. No matter how many miles you ride, you're an important part of the Ride For A Child team. Let's ride together!


Community Spotlight


Meet Garrett, one of the leaders of our teen group, The Luminaries.
For Garrett, Candlelighters have been a very special
gift on his journey through brain cancer. 

Who We Serve

Candlelighters provides support for families in Oregon and SW Washington impacted by childhood cancer. From diagnosis through treatment and beyond, we provide programs such as emergency financial assistance, an annual family camp, family activities, bereavement support, and a hospital meal program that offers comfort and support for families during a difficult journey. Through it all, we never charge families a dime.
