I am running my first marathon this year as a member of the Champions for CHAM team!
On November 6, the team will represent The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) in the legendary TCS NYC marathon.
All donations support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing health outcomes for pediatric patients and their families, including child life programming, integrative medicine, palliative care services and support groups for parents.
Since opening in 2001, The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has served the most vulnerable children from the Bronx and beyond, providing the best routine care while also treating children with complex and life-threatening medical conditions. CHAM strives to help children have the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. CHAM is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community. CHAM is unique in serving every child regardless of the family's ability to pay. In partnership with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, groundbreaking discoveries by CHAM investigators have led to new therapies, models of care and better outcomes for children. Each year, CHAM serves 250,000 unique patients over the course of 9,000 inpatient admissions, 65,000 emergency department visits and 2,000,000 ambulatory care visits.
Thank you for supporting CHAM and our team of dedicated runners! Whether you are racing or cheering, we look forward to seeing you on November 6th!
