How You Can Help

Step One:
Decide how you want to raise money to help the kids!

There are a lot of different ways to inspire your coworkers, friends, and family to help the kids at the hospital. Some examples include: marathon events, trivia nights, sporting events, runs/walks, auctions, bake sales, bike rides, galas, concerts, jeans days, golf tournaments, head shaves, and toy drives to name a few!
