15th Annual Go the Distance Walk at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital
September 15, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Three former pediatric patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital will lead the
15th Annual Go the Distance Walk and Family Fun Day on September 15. The children will help represent the more than 30,000 seriously ill and injured children cared for each year by Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s and its advanced pediatric services.
The event is Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s largest annual fundraiser and draws thousands of former patients, families, staff, and supportive community members from around the region. Following a casual one-mile walk around the hospital’s campus – the event’s signature procession led by the ambassadors – participants will enjoy a morning filled with fun activities for the whole family.
Among the thousands of participants at this year’s Go the Distance Walk and Family Fun Day event will be hundreds of former hospital patients and families returning to the hospital for annual reunions, including Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which will host unit graduate for the 37th consecutive year.
