Ride For A Child

Ride For A Child began as one man's mission to raise awareness and support for families battling childhood cancer in Oregon. RFAC2020-logo-web.png
We are thrilled to invite you to register on our new Ride For A Child 2020 Pledge-Driven site. 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! With our pledge-based website, YOU set your own path and pace. Ride outdoors or indoors, at whatever pace and distance works for you. What a fun way to get active outside together as a family, and invite others to join or support you via social media!
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!

Cancer Warrior Breakfast


We cancelled our Cancer Warrior Breakfast due to COVID-19, but are thrilled to announce that through our online campaign, we raised more than $70,000 in lieu of the in-person Cancer Warrior Breakfast.  This could not have been done without support from key community members including our board members and donors, as well as matching gifts from The Schuler Family Foundation and Jeanne Beacham.  Thank you to our sponsors: MediaWorksFirst Republic BankGenentechInRoads Credit UnionJoshua Callahan, Attorney and Pacific West Bank. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Because of you, we can continue to provide services and programs to the families impacted by childhood cancer.  

Harvest of Hope

Candlelighters For Children With Cancer’s 17th annual Harvest of Hope was a wonderful success. We had more than 250+ attendees, wonderful silent and live auction items. Nana Khing and Jeff Best shared the story of their son Christian's diagnosis, and more families represented the raffle table. Togther, we raised more than $160,000! What a fun event, and we look forward to Harvest of Hope in 2020.

Save the date for next year's Harvest of Hope - October 3, 2020 at the Hilton Downtown.
