Heroes for Life: Campaign for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago was the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the history of our hospital and one of the nation’s largest on behalf of children’s health.
After eight years (2004-2012), the campaign concluded with more than 250,000 donors raising $675 million, representing gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations. These generous benefactors helped to create the 23-story, state-of-the-art Lurie Children’s, funded programs, advanced research and supported the recruitment of leading pediatric specialists. Through Heroes for Life, we are transforming pediatric healthcare and research for this and future generations of children. If you have yet to visit the hospital, take this virtual tour to see what has been created through the support of the entire community.
Since the opening of Lurie Children’s on June 9, 2012, impact on the health of children and pediatric medicine has been immediate and profound.
