Celebration of Champions® 2019
Connolly: Living for Giving
Welcome to Julie Connolly's fundraising page for the 2019 Celebration of Champions! Thank you for joining me and making a donation to my team benefiting the Peckham Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders at Rady Children's Hospital. I've been a proud organizer of the Celebration of Champions for nearly a decade now. It is such an important event that makes a big difference in the lives of San Diego's youngest cancer patients.
Special programs funded by supporters of the Celebration of Champions.
• Counseling Services- help in crisis intervention, supportive therapy, and neuropsychological testing to patients and their families
• Parent Liaisons- parents who have been down the cancer path at the Peckham Center who are on staff to provide support, expertise, and guidance to families coping with their child’s shocking cancer diagnosis
• Child Life Specialists- caring staff who prepare children for tests/procedures and teach necessary coping skills to lessen the frightening hospital experience
• Special Use Funds- hardship funding for critical but unfunded costs such as wigs, transportation, and meals during prolonged treatment Our event is unique as our sponsors are invited to participate in this special day and run alongside one of our brave Champions.
This is a day away from the hospital anxiously awaited by patients, family, and hospital staff. It is a great opportunity for our sponsors to give back and participate as part of a dedicated team.
To learn more, please visit www.celebrationofchampions.com. Your support will help over 200 children who this year will hear their cancer diagnosis for the first time and all San Diego children who will make more than 13,000 visits for cancer treatment at Rady Children’s. Thank you for your consideration.
