Don’t miss the “funnest” lunch of the year!
The Kids at Heart lunch has been raising money for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital for 14 years, ensuring that Spokane children don’t have to travel long distances to receive world-class care.
Funds from Kids at Heart have been used to establish a new pediatric mental health program, purchase high-tech isolettes for at-risk babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, buy a specialized anesthesia machine for our tiniest cardiac patients, support our pain-free and palliative care programs, and even help build an entire 24/7 Emergency & Trauma Center just for kids!
This Year’s Focus: Andrew Rypien Hospital-based School Program
Many children are thrilled to have time off from school. But when they’re missing class because of extended stays in the hospital, that’s another subject.
School is a major part of a child’s life, and being away from that daily routine can be stressful. Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital offers academic support to kids from kindergarten through high school, as well as GED and college resources. School-based activities are offered in a hospital classroom and at the bedside when patients are unable to leave their rooms.
Staying connected with classmates and keeping up with homework helps young patients feel empowered and in control, even when facing serious illness.
The school program is only able to survive because of generous community donations. Please help school stay in session at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital by attending Kids at Heart!
