Step Up for Kids 2018

Team Mikey Frannie

Are you ready for it??? Let's make this years climb to the top of the AON Center the best one yet! Over and over Team Mikey Frannie has stepped up (get it) to the challenge to raise funds for The Family Services Department at Lurie's and every year we rise. Lets climb for the little boy who at 4 had open heart surgery and now climbs ( and beats) with us to the top! 

We climb for Michael Francis and my nephew Finn Tin Tin and all of the other children that have benefited from the care they received at Lurie's. More importantly we climb to support and give back to those who are not as fortunate. Please click on my personal page to see why we climb and consider joining the best team to ever climb the AON Center! 


Make a difference in the lives of nearly 200,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago each year.

Help our team raise funds in support of the 21th 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!
