Events at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital

Community Fundraising Activities

Community and fundraising events at East Tennessee Children's Hospital are going on year-round. These events provide us with an opportunity to engage the community and obtain donations that go on to support and improve our medical services. We strive to make these events something for everyone to look forward to.
