100% Virtual – Walk or Run the Race Wherever You Are! It’s free!

This year, Children’s National Hospital celebrates its milestone birthday with the Race for Every Child: 150th Birthday Edition. The race will be 100% virtual. Many kids who participate, including Children’s National patients, are not yet eligible for the vaccine. Childrens’ safety is always a top priority.

A Vintage Affair 2022

A Vintage Affair is our signature fundraising event featuring fine wines paired with delectable cuisine. The evening features silent and live auctions which offer the opportunity to bid on vintage wines, unique vacations and memorable dining experiences.  Proceeds raised through A Vintage Affair fund the Founders Auxiliary Board’s Annual Grants and Major Gift Programs.

A Vintage Affair 2022 is currently being considered to take place in the 4th quarter of 2022.
