Event Ideas:

Walk, Run, Ride or Hike CURE Golf Tournament
Walk Run Ride or Hike   Golf Tournament

Start a family fun run in your community (include a theme, like The Cupid Chase 5K, above), establish a bike race, or hike up a mountain!


Find a local golf course and connect with their manager.  Many courses offer discounted rates for non-profit events (Drive for CURE, 2012 event pictured above).  Enlist some golf buddies to help with the event planning.

Spinning/Indoor Cycling CURE Cocktails

Worried about the weather? Indoor events like spinning (like the Fly for Faith 2013 event, above) can take place, rain or shine. A great workout for a great cause!


Invite friends and family to a very Happy Hour—enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine while raising vital funds for epilepsy research. The above photo was taken at CURE’s Cedar Rapids benefit.

Swimming CURE Personal Shopping Event

Another great indoor (or outdoor) activity—swimming! Grab some friends and dive right in to this fundraiser. Here our Hugh-A-Thon boys pause for a quick photo, March, 2013.


Partner with your favorite boutique for a shop-a-thon (like the p.45 event in 2011, above). It’s a great way to raise funds while helping a local business!


Still not sure how to begin? Email, to set up a time to chat about the possibilities for your CURE fundraiser. Thank you for being part of the fight to find a cure for the epilepsies!
