On Tuesday, November 28, 2023 the stars of Boston sports shine even brighter at the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport! Join our all-star team—Boston’s leaders in pro sports, business, and medicine—as we come together for one special night to raise funds and help brave kids defeat illness at Boston Children’s Hospital.
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 patients through Boston Children’s Every Child Fund—providing lifesaving care and research breakthroughs to kids with rare and complex conditions.
One of those kids is Avianna.
Avianna’s heart was failing as she waited for a heart transplant. She needed an artificial heart—an external device that takes over when a patient’s heart can’t pump enough blood to the lungs. Avianna was the first patient at Boston Children’s to test a new, portable version of an artificial heart and a custom stroller to carry it. The device’s small size and user-friendly interface gave Avianna and her family a level of freedom not possible with the standard, large artificial heart. The device kept Avianna’s heart going until she received a heart transplant at Boston Children's. Today, Avianna is back home in New York State—a brave little girl with the chance to grow up happy and healthy.
