The scientific and medical progress of the past decade has created big opportunities to advance research and improve patient care, but fueling this work requires resources.

As a patient-driven organization, our continued success depends on the initiative of supporters like you. Each dollar that you raise will help the Chordoma Foundation accelerate the development of new treatments, and provide vital information to help chordoma patients and their families get the best possible care.

It’s easier than you might imagine to host a fundraising event, and can be a lot of fun. There are many ways to help and many ways we can help you.

This useful guide provides the inspiration and tools you need to create an impactful event.

Words of wisdom from our fundraisers

Check out what some of our amazing fundraisers have to say about their experiences hosting community fundraising events.

Swing for a Cure - Hank Ciocca“Swing for a Cure was a very positive way for our family and friends to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Hank’s passing.  We feel strongly that the event underscored his legacy in a most appropriate manner: supporting an important cause while at the same time gathering together to enjoy a fun afternoon that as a bonus included his favorite sport, golf! We learned that Hank touched many lives and people were extremely generous in supporting a cause important to all of us. We would 100% do it again.”

– Ciocca Family, Swing for a Cure in Honor of Hank Ciocca


Brooklyn Half Marathon“This was our 5th year, and it was amazing to have Team Chordoma and our fundraising effort grow once again. What has been so meaningful is the increasing involvement of the broader Chordoma Foundation community in making this event such a success. I look forward to engaging even more community volunteers and runners next year. This event is bigger than any one person, and so much more can be achieved by including the broader Chordoma Foundation community.”

– Steve Mandel, Brooklyn Half Marathon


Hike to Find a Cure“It was a chance for me to get involved. The Chordoma Foundation does so much to advance research and help patients and their families, and I am proud to be a part of this community and everything it stands for and has accomplished for those in need.”

– Seth Butler, Hike to Find a Cure
