Join Champions for CHAM

Champions for CHAM, the marathon team of The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM), is officially recruiting team members for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon! Members receive guaranteed entry to the November 6 race by pledging to raise funds for CHAM. All donations are used to support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing the outcomes for our pediatric patients and their families. Some of these services include child life programming that provides psycho-social support, healing arts services such as music therapy, and support groups for parents. Last year, our inaugural team raised an incredible $80,000. Help us surpass this total in 2016 by applying today!
