Step Up for Kids 2017

The Jeanine Sheridan Foundation

We step in honor of our beloved Jeanine Sheridan. We climb as one team with Jeanine in our hearts. We come together for one day to celebrate the young woman who fought so hard to beat cancer and while doing so, provided perspective, guidance and love to everyone around her. Join us in pledge, in spirit or in person and see the power one day can make.

With more than 173,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago each year, The Jeanine Sheridan Foundation is raising funds in support of the 19th annual Aon Step Up for Kids! All proceeds benefit the Family Services Department of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to ensure all patients have access to the highest-quality care. Remember, every dollar raised means a brighter and healthier future for our kids.

Here are just a few ways your donations could help:

$35 can purchase a Beads of Courage starter kit for a child with cancer.

$60 can purchase an adaptive toy for children with special needs and disabilities to use during play and therapy sessions.

$120 can help pay for one day of Skylight TV programming, the hospital’s own interactive television station that broadcasts special shows such as “Story Time with Dot” and “Body Parts Bingo” directly to patient rooms.

$240 can help purchase two days of Rainbow Dog pet therapy for patients.

$500 can purchase crayons, markers, paper, paint and other arts and crafts supplies for patients to use throughout the hospital.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.

On behalf of the patients and families of Lurie Children’s, thank you for your support!
