Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend

Since its inception in 2003, Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend event has raised over $1,125,000.  



This annual event is a benefit for the Charitable Patient Care Fund benefitting patients of Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Cancer Center. All dollars raised for this fund provide financial assistance to Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital cancer patients. 

We are grateful for the continued support of our volunteers, staff and community as well as our corporate sponsors.  As in past years, a fun twist to the Celebrity Weekend events is the participation of our celebrity friends from Hollywood, sports, music and our local area celebrities.  Each celebrity guest donates his/her time and name to this worthy cause!  

Mark your calendars for the 2015 Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend -- August 7th-9th!  


The 2014 Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend was held August 15th-17th.  We were honored to have four amazing individuals -- Kara Dunphy, Dr. Lori Platt, Dolores Silkworth & Marilyn Weber, Lifetime Achievement -- share their stories and courage throughout the weekend.  For more information on the 2014 event and our recipients, please click here
