35th Annual Kids Day

Tuesday March 8th, is the 35th Annual Kids Day Benefiting Valley Children’s Hospital

MADERA –  Protecting the health and well-being of our 8,000 volunteers – and the tens of thousands of donors – continues to be Valley Children’s top priority. So for the third year in a row, Kids Day will be a digital event.

Since 1988, Kids Day has raised more than $10.4 million for the “Children’s Fund.” Last year, donations helped Valley Children’s once again rank as one of the best children’s hospitals in the country in seven specialties; expand our robotic surgery, precision medicine and neuro-oncology programs; develop the area’s only Cochlear Implant Center; and fund programs and initiatives that promote the health and well-being of our patients and families, including child life and spiritual support services.

“The community’s incredible engagement leading up to Kids Day this year brings great hope to Valley Children’s physicians and staff,” says Valley Children’s Healthcare Foundation President Rob Saroyan. “On behalf of the patients and families we serve, we are grateful for the generous support that the Valley extends each year on Kids Day to help us care for kids.”

To donate during this year’s digital Kids Day:

  • Visit org/foundation/donatetokidsday to make a gift by credit or debit card in any amount.
  • Text “GEORGE” to 20222 to make an automatic $10 donation.
  • New this year, you can create a personal fundraising page online that can be shared with friends, family and members of the community to collect donations in support of Kids Day. Please visit blackbaud-sites.com for more information.
