Events that Fund Kids' Cancer Research

At first glance, it might be difficult to see what boxing and finding a cure for childhood cancer have in common, but for us, it’s perfectly clear. Both require focus, dedication, and the strength to persevere in the face of failure, all for the rare moments of triumph.

That’s why it’s fitting that the main event of Friday Night Fights is The Morgan Adams Foundation vs. Pediatric Cancer.

Date: February 8, 2020
Time: 6:00-10:00pm

artma is a unique, funky, fabulous art auction and fund-raising extravaganza like no other and is embraced by those who believe deeply in the healing power of art. Started in 2001, artma is a biennial (once every 2 years) auction of art, generously donated by local, regional, and nationally recognized artists. At each highly anticipated event, artma hosts over 1,000 guests and sells over 200 pieces of art to benefit The Morgan Adams Foundation.

artma was created to find a new and fresh way to raise money to support researchers who are tirelessly searching for a cure for pediatric cancer. MAF is dedicated to improving the quality of life and survival rates of children diagnosed with cancer. The Morgan Adams Memorial Neuro-Oncology research fund at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver was started in November of 1998, after Morgan, age 6, lost her battle with a glioblastoma brain tumor. artma is one way that MAF seeks to increase the fund resources, thereby giving greater support to research efforts being conducted in neuro-oncology and other areas of childhood cancer.

February 8, 2020 will bring the 11th annual artma. Join us!
