Thank you for your generous support of Memorial Children's Hospital! Through the Hearts of Gold Walk, your energy and efforts will directly impact the lives of the nearly 4,750 children who visit Memorial Children's Hospital each year. Thank you!
Check out the highlights from 2013's walk!
Now in it’s third year, the Hearts of Gold Mall Walk for Memorial Children’s Hospital has become a beloved community tradition for thousands of people across our region. Everyone who supports having a world-class children’s hospital right here in Michiana, is invited to join us at the University Park Mall on Feb. 1, 2014. Families who have been touched by MCH can walk in honor of a child they love and connect with the physicians, nurses and specialists who have cared for their loved ones.
Proceeds from the 2014 Hearts of Gold Mall Walk will go toward the Child Life Specialist Program at Memorial Children's Hospital. Child Life Specialists are trained to help children and their families manage and understand challenging life events and highly stressful medical experiences.
Currently, Memorial Children's Hospital has two full-time and one part-time Child Life Specialist who help care for the thousands of children who are treated at Memorial Children's Hospital each year. Your generosity will help assist Memorial in expanding the Child life Program into the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program and the Emergency Department.
