We have decided to play a role in helping the patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital by creating a team for the Phoenix Children’s Hospital 5K fun run. The idea that we can do something for others by staying active is at the heart of Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
We run in memory of Derek Swanson. A young man who battled mitochondrial disease all his life, but lived life to the fullest. He passed away in March, barely two weeks after his 15th birthday. He loved life, laughter and the many doctors, nurses and everyone he knew at PCH. We now give back to PCH for all that was given to him.
We have set fundraising and team member goals and would love to have your support. Help us by donating, or even better, registering for the event and joining our team. Together we can GO THE DISTANCE!
Phoenix Children’s Hospital is Arizona’s only licensed children’s hospital and among the largest in the country. In fact, within five years, one in four Arizona children will have received care from a Phoenix Children’s provider.
