Caps for the Cure Planning Resources

Kristina SchultzCaps for the Cure is a fundraising campaign that gives students permission to wear hats to school by donating to American Family Children's Hospital.

Kids get to help other kids by raising money to advance pediatric cancer research while providing hope for patients and their families. Inspired by Kristina Schultz (left), Caps for the Cure has raised more than $160,000 since May 2007.

How does "Caps for the Cure" work?

Most schools will want to coordinate this effort to take place on one specific day. Encourage all students to support pediatric cancer research by donating $1 and wearing a hat at school.
