Stronger together, even though we are apart

During this very challenging year, Duke continues to monitor the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and to make decisions with the health and safety of all community members in mind while focusing on its core missions of education, research, and patient care.

As a result, Duke University and Duke Health will not host any in-person events until further notice. These events include board meetings, reunions, lectures, development and alumni events, and Duke-sponsored events on- or off-campus.

Virtual or distanced events, such as a distanced 5k, are still encouraged. Please check back soon for more information on how to host your own virtual event for Duke Children's. 

If you’re interested—and excited—about hosting a virtual or distanced event for Duke Children’s, download our Community Partners Event Application and let us know what you’re planning. Together, we can create the best possible event. Or get started with an online fundraiser or peer-to-peer fundraising event TODAY by clicking "create your event fundraising page!"

Organizing the ‘Jump for the Children’ Horse Shows is an opportunity to do what I love: working with children and horses and effecting a change in the lives of patients at Duke Children’s
