Move for Kids 2019

Team Catherine Flaherty

Our little hero, Catherine, spent her share of time at Lurie Children's Hospital after undergoing open heart surgery at 5 days old. Now, 3.5 years later, looking at Catherine, you would never know that she lives with heart defects or that her life started the way it did. She is funny, sassy, creative and absolutely full of energy! We are eternally grateful to the Lurie Children's team of doctors, nurses and staff and would love to create a winning fundraising team in support of these amazing people.

Please help our family to make a difference at the hospital and to support the nearly 213,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago! Join us on May 19 for the 2019 Move for Kids 5K! If you can not join us, please consider making a gift for our team.

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.
