Superhero 5K: Event Sponsorships

Our annual Superhero 5K is Candlelighters' premier fundraiser. Now in its 32nd year, this event welcomes nearly 1,000 participants for a fun-filled family event that supports local families battling cancer.

Sponsorships account for nearly 50% of the funds raised, and without the generous support of companies, this event would not be possible. Sponsorship levels start at $1,000 and offer an array of benefits including onsite activation, marketing reach, and employee engagement.

Become a superhero to local families facing childhood cancer by partnering with us today!

Halloween Bash

Our annual Halloween Bash is one of our premier family events with more than 100 families in attendance. 

This fun-filled event is hosted by our friends The Ellis Family of Ellis Island. Their entire family and Ellis Island team, along with many volunteers come together each October to provide a memorable childhood experience for the families we serve.  Last year community supporters came together to help raise an astounding $779,000. 

There are many ways to get involved. Become a sponsor, donate candy, volunteer, or make a financial contribution to let kids facing cancer have a spooktacular night while just getting to be kids!

Holiday Adopt-a-Family

The Adopt-A-Family Program has been created to help Candlelighters Families, whose focus is on their child’s illness, enjoy the holiday season without any additional stress or worries through the generosity of wonderful caring donors within the Las Vegas community. 

When a family spends much of their time in the hospital or clinic with their child undergoing treatments, they are overwhelmed by the many co-pays for doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescriptions, or they lose their child to this disease, the holidays can be tough. Most families do not have the emotional or financial means to go shopping for gifts. The generosity of the community allows Candlelighters families the opportunity to celebrate the holidays and provide a sense of normalcy for the diagnosed child, their siblings, and their parents. 

Adopter applications for 2023 will open in October.
