Foundation Events



Celebrate John Muir Health! is John Muir Health Foundation’s annual signature fundraising event in support of John Muir Health. Started in 2014, each year’s event has a unique theme, and proceeds benefit a particular department, area or program of John Muir Health. Past events have raised $1 million or more for John Muir Health’s pediatric intensive care unit and comprehensive cancer services.
