Host an Event

The power of fundraising is within you! Community events empower our advocates to share our mission and raise funds that provide transformative time for families facing cancer.  It can be as simple as a child hosting a lemonade stand on a sunny August day, or as exciting as a community planning a cancer color race. We can help you with your idea and provide some structure to your fundraising goals. The sky is the limit!

Bumping for a Break!

Bumping for a Break was the brainchild of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Youth Organization Region 20 girls’ volleyball. This fun-filled volleyball event has been hosted by schools around the area to benefit FPS! Bumping for a Break events support our mission by fundraising and bringing awareness to those affected by cancer during a day of exciting volleyball games, raffle ticket and t-shirt sales, food and games! If your school wants to Bump for a Break, please contact Ellen Vind or call 267.708.0510 for more information!

All it takes is a bit of community, a dash of color and a willingness to help families take a break from cancer! Contact Ellen Vind to learn how you can bring a Color Race to your community!
