Move for Kids 2019

Joanna's Journey









Welcome to Joanna's Journey Team Page.

Please consider joining us for a FUN event on May 19th at Soldier Field at the Move for the Kids Rally. It's a fun run/walk 5K & morning of inspiring stories, families, and children, sharing in an experience that reminds us of the beauty of life. Life isn't guranteed for any of us. We understand that reality, as many of you do, after facing unexpected health scares with someone you love. That happened to the Schimmel's with our 3 week old baby girl, and Lurie Children's Hospital was there throughout it all.

As a team, we celebrate the miracle of Joanna's healing each year, and the participation of our littelest team member, Jo! She has lead the way in her courage, compassion, and open-hearted nature, and it inspires us to spend some time intentionally giving back to an orginization that supports families in their time of need.

If you or your family would like to join our team, let us know! Sign-up is FREE, and the event is a ton of fun in our beautiful city. The music, energy, inspiring stories, and combined humanity of the morning will leave you thankful and bursting with gratitude for those you love, and our access to care. It also reminds us that we all walk different journeys, and we honor and memorialize the journeys that are not just like ours, because all stories matter. All children. 

All for your One. 

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!!!!
