There are many hands that shape a child’s life. As Northeast Ohio’s nationally ranked and locally trusted children’s hospital, Cleveland Clinic Children’s pledges to be the hands families can trust when their child needs care.

Derby Day is one of the many ways supporters can invest in our mission. For more than 30 years, our signature event has helped provide vital funds for the care that allows children to experience life beyond survival — to thrive and live their lives to the fullest. Held in Cleveland each May, the Derby Day Soirée is a fun, fresh experience for our donors to support care for children and their families, educate the best and brightest Cleveland Clinic caregivers, and, most importantly, seed and speed pediatric research.

Much like derby horses, philanthropic support for Cleveland Clinic Children’s accelerates through the finish line. One hundred percent of every dollar raised will support transformative, lifesaving pediatric care and research happening at Cleveland Clinic. Your support today will impact the lives of millions of children and families around the world tomorrow.

Join us in vibrant colors and playful party hats each May for the Derby Day Soirée. Your generosity puts children and families one step closer to the winner’s circle.
