Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Move for the Kids or At Least Move For Charlotte! Walk with us….

Leave a comment


Today is May 6.

Just 3 days before Charlotte’s 9th birthday.

Just 10 days before the 9th anniversary of her life-saving heart surgery.

And just 13 days before Move for the Kids, the 5k celebrating and supporting the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Walk with us! If you can’t walk consider a donation–your money will be well-invested:

  • $35: Provides parents a pull-out couch so they can remain by their child’s side.
  • $60: Supports the more than 600,000 patient visits each year.
  • $120: Helps cover the cost for one pediatric oncology trial for one year.
  • $240: Assists Lurie Children’s patient families with day-to-day necessities.
  • $450: Provides essential items for one infant to ensure a calming and comfortable stay in the NICU.
