Champions for CHAM is warming up for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon! On November 6, the team will represent The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) in the 26.2-mile race. Members receive guaranteed entry to the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon by pledging to raise funds for CHAM. All donations support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing health outcomes for pediatric patients and their families, including child life programming, palliative care services and support groups for parents.
Since opening in 2001, the goal of The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has been to provide children from the Bronx and beyond with the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. Today, CHAM is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community. 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 services 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!
