Special Fundraising Campaigns

IU School of Medicine is grateful for volunteers who spearhead fundraising campaigns in their communities and among peer groups. The following volunteer-driven campaigns are currently underway to raise support for medical education and research at IU School of Medicine.

100 Voices of Hope

100 Voices of Hope raises money to fund high-risk, high-impact research projects related to metastatic breast cancer. The goal is to gather a minimum of 100 donor “voices” each year who contribute $1,000 each. These donors have a voice in selecting which research projects receive funding. Giving opportunities are also available at levels less than $1,000.

Bigelow Open

The Bigelow Open was established in honor of Mike Bigelow, a local business executive who died in 2009 of pancreatic cancer. His family and friends began this annual golf outing to support pancreatic cancer research at IU School of Medicine.

Diversity Recruitment Scholarship

A committee of dedicated volunteers has worked to raise funds to establish a Diversity Recruitment Scholarship. This fund is an important resource to attract the best students from underrepresented populations to IU School of Medicine.

Miles for Myeloma

Miles for Myeloma is a two-day cycling event that gives myeloma patients and their loved ones the opportunity to conduct personalized campaigns to generate awareness about the blood cancer and raise funding for research and care aimed at improving treatments.
