Our community fundraisers have been busy. Whether it's a life-saving lemonade stand or a motorcycle ride to help fight cancer, no matter how they fundraise, they help Nemours Children's deliver the nation’s best care to kids.
Enjoy these highlights from our most recent community fundraising events.

This year, they presented hundreds of coloring books and crayons to be distributed in the hospital as well as a check for over $600 benefiting Child Life. Thankfully, Dominic has made a full recovery and continues to be a beloved member of the Nemours community.
