Participate in a Fundraising Event

As a nonprofit organization, we are committed to providing our services with no cost to the patient. By participating in person or through a virtual event, you will make a big difference in the lives of patients and caregivers impacted by chronic, life-threatening, or debilitating illness.

Current Fundraising Events

Each year, Patient Advocate Foundation hosts a themed gala and fundraising event called A Promise of Hope Affair in February in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The formal evening is filled with a seated dinner, silent and live auction and dancing.  Funds raised during this event provide financial support to PAF's direct patient services and the Scholarship for Survivors academic awards.  For more specific event details or to register, visit

In addition, throughout the year, PAF's development and events team coordinates numerous community-driven and national fundraising initiatives and events that benefit PAF patients.   Events may include group or individuals raising money as part of 5K or 1/2 marathon distance runs, employer and employee contests and fundraisers that donate profits to PAF, college fraternity and sorority fundraising events, as well as many others.  If you are interested in hosting or participating in a fundraising event benefiting PAF, please visit our volunteer page for details and contact info for our event staff.

Run alongside PAF's staff and friends as we participate in our 2nd Annual Crawlin' Crab 5K Fundraiser to support our Scholarship for Survivors.   Run, walk and donate as an individual, or create your own team and build towards a fundraising goal.   All money raised helps increase the number of young adults that receive financial support while pursuing their education goals.
