Children's Champion Club

Inspiring stories of courage, hope and healing unfold at Children’s every day. Our Children’s Champions tell their stories as a way of giving back to the hospital, helping to build awareness, and offering comfort to other kids.

If your child was treated at Children's, he or she is a champion.

The benefits of membership are many:

Help heal others. Imagine the difference it can make to a child coping with a new diagnosis or treatment, just knowing that someone else walked in their shoes. And talking about your experiences as a family can be therapeutic, too.

Keep connected. Patients, families and our doctors and nurses often form strong bonds while a child is being treated. This is a positive way to keep connected.

Help us care for more children. Our Children's Champions are important and effective ambassadors for the hospital. Many of our Champions volunteer, give back and participate in hospital events.

Free registration to Briggs and Al's Run and Walk. This much-loved event is a special day of celebration and recognition for our patients, and we love to see our Champions enjoy the spotlight while helping raise funds for other kids who need care.
