Ronald McDonald House

Families can stay at this “home-away-from-home” and find a comfy bed, a safe place to sleep each night, as well as a home-cooked meal and activities for the kids. The house is located less than 1 mile from Duke hospital and welcomes 55 families each night!  DHU "adopted a room" and also helps sponsor the Hearts of Gold Gala.

Duke Children’s Gala – Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center

The Duke Children’s Gala on Saturday, October 22, 2016 was a wonderful success! Over 350 guests helped us celebrate the amazing work of Duke Children’s. With their support and the support of our many sponsors, we raised over $130,000 for Duke Children’s through the live appeal and auction items alone.

Hosts Ann Reed, MD, chair of the Department of Pediatrics, and Allan Kirk, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Surgery, highlighted the important work being done at Duke Children’s and the tremendous impact funds raised at the last Gala had on Duke Children’s.

Rainbow of Heroes Walk

The Rainbow of Heroes Walk commemorates and celebrates all Duke Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant (PBMT) patients and their families. The Walk is not only the main fundraiser for the Duke PBMT Family Support Program, but more than that, it is a reunion for patients, families, nurses, therapists, doctors, volunteers, and supporters who have come to know each other through the months-long transplant process.  Don't miss next year's event on April 27th, 2019!

Thank You to our Sponsors!
