DIY Fundraising


Candlelighters DIY fundraising events are a wonderful and rewarding way to support your friend, family member or co-worker who has a child battling pediatric cancer.

Channel your imagination, your ideas and your energy for a purpose.  Your "Do-It-Yourself" event can be anything from a 5k race, golf tournament, auction, host a dinner, scrapbooking party or bake sale.  Let your talents and interests lead you to your own fundraising venture.

Oregon Cancer Ski Out
March 10th & 11th 2019

The Oregon Cancer Ski Out is a two-day event for skiers and snowboarders that combines fun, competition, and fundraising with a unique racing format designed to let even novice skiers or snowboarders participate in the fight against cancer.

Each year teams of 5 compete for prizes at Mt. Hood Meadows, in a race that rewards consistency and teamwork rather than individual speed. Volunteer celebrity and professional coaching staff are on hand throughout the race, coordinating teams and assisting with professional advice and instructions.
