HealthyCHILD at the 2023 Walk for Children's

We had such an amazing time at the 2023 Walk for Children's, presented by UPMC and UPMC Health Plan! Our team fundraised over $300 for the UPMC Children's Hospital Foundation! The HC walkers had so much fun exploring the wonderful vendors and walking with our community on a warm and sunny Saturday morning. We were happy to see so many mental health and social-emotional resources present, such as therapy dogs and a booth for the awesome Child Life Specialists who do so much for children who are receiving care at the hospitals, as well as their siblings and caregivers.

The Walk for Children's raised, in total, $1,033,358.72 that goes towards children and their families and caregivers to support life-changing care and cutting-edge research. Check out more about the UPMC Children's Hospital Foundation here - https://www.givetochildrens.org/about-us
