5th Annual Phoenix Children’s Hospital 5K

Virtual walk format raises $162K for patient care

Supporters from across Arizona came together to Walk. Run. Ride. Fundraise for Phoenix Children’s Hospital patients from Fri., Oct. 30, through Sun., Nov. 1, for the Fifth Annual Phoenix Children’s Hospital 5K, presented virtually amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The family-friendly event raised nearly $162,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Hope Fund, the Hospital’s greatest area of need, which supports more than 60 of the programs and services funded solely or significantly through philanthropy.

The virtual format gave participants the opportunity to walk, run or ride from any location at their own pace, all while social distancing. The funds raised benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital at a critical time for health care. The Hope Fund has an ongoing need to provide funds for research, patient care, state-of-the-art technology and equipment, which does not stop during a pandemic.

Sponsor for the PCH 5K included RSM US LLP, The Joint Chiropractic and AutoNation.
