What is Chance for Life?

Chance for Life is the Washington area's most dynamic charity poker tournament raising over $2 million to date to support childhood cancer research. For 11 years we have come together for in celebration of Kennedy Snyder and her continued fight. Chance for Life benefits the many children who continue to battle this incurable disease. This is your chance to go ALL-IN
 on childhood cancer and make a difference!

Who Does it Benefit?

100% of the event's proceeds are proudly donated to benefit the life-saving efforts of Children's National Medical Center Foundation and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation as well as nursing grants to improve the quality of life and care of children with cancer. 

Go ALL-IN and give children a chance for life!
