All Day

CureFest for Childhood Cancer

CureFest 2021 will take place in a hybrid format this September. There will be an in-person event in Washington, DC as well as an interactive virtual format that will allow families from across the world to hold One Voice Walks and other activities in their own communities.

2020’s virtual-only format allowed us to reach many families that would otherwise be unable to attend CureFest in person. Based on this success, we made the decision to offer a virtual experience in 2021 even though we will have an in-person presence this year in our Nation’s Capital.

CureFest for Childhood Cancer will be held in-person in Washington, DC on September 23 – 26, 2021.

Here are some of the features of in-person CureFest:
