Garrett Runs for Emma

In 2017 I met a very special person to me. Emma Finke came in and stole my heart from the first time I met her. Her giggles and smile would make anyone melt, and I was no exception. Her exemplary battle and toughness through ATRT was one that I will never forget and one that keeps me driving when I think times are tough. I look up to her daily and am dedicating this marathon to her. Shine on Emma!



Make a difference in the lives of nearly 213,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago each year. Support my efforts for the 2019 Lurie Children's Marathon Team by making a gift today. Every dollar raised means a brighter and healthier future for our children.

Here are just a few ways your donations could help:

$35 can provide a comfort item for a premature infant to ensure the smallest and most fragile babies heal and grow faster.

$60 can help provide inpatient entertainment and distractions to help patients reduce stress and have fun while undergoing treatment.

$120 can help provide small lab supplies for one of the hospital’s clinical trials to ensure our children have access to the latest treatments and therapies.

$240 can help provide supplies for the Lurie Children’s classroom so that children in the hospital can continue their education.

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!
