Thank you for being our champion!

Robbie, Boston Children's patient

It was a rally to remember—and one that will generate hope, healing and lifesaving discoveries! Like a champion, you teamed up with sports stars and business leaders to raise over $4.5 million and make healthy futures possible for kids at Boston Children’s and beyond.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at Champions for Children’s as we rallied together to raise funds for the sickest kids at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Special thanks to our sports teams.


How your support helps kids

You give lifesaving answers to families with nowhere else to turn. Funds raised through Champions for Children's go directly to helping families through Boston Children's Every Child Fund—advancing discoveries and providing hope for kids with the rarest conditions and most complex needs.

Call her the Comeback Kid! After Elliott’s family adopted her, they raced to Boston Children’s to save her. She only had months to live. At 3, she went home healthy, but had to return—more than once—to battle grave, new challenges. Like a true champion, Elliott never gave up, making the trip from her home state of Florida for lifesaving care you help make possible.




Thank you to our sponsors who help make Champions for Children’s possible.
