Join CCF and families across the country as we host Bake for a Cure bake sales to increase awareness of cardiomyopathy and raise funds for research.

Baking a Difference Together

Bake for a Cure is a nationwide initiative started by CCF families to increase awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy and raise much-needed funds for research. Join Team CCF and families across the country as we host Bake for a Cure events at community centers, schools, and neighborhoods throughout the year. Hosting a bake sale brings people together, creates special memories, and provides a creative outlet and fun activity for many. Together, we can bake a difference for children with cardiomyopathy.

Hosting a Bake for a Cure event doesn't have to be complicated.

CCF is here to help and make sure that your event is well supported and successful. We are ready to assist you in brainstorming, planning, and promoting your event.
