How else can I contribute to Cook Children's Child Life Program?
If you want to do MORE for the cause, in our relationship with Cooks Children’s Medical Centerwe learned about their Child Life program. The Child Life specialists work with the kids and families to make their visit to the medical center easier and more comfortable.

Feeling sick, getting injured, being in strange surroundings, experiencing painful procedures, changes in routine and separation from family and friends can all add up to stress and anxiety for a child or teenager. Child Life staff members recognize that hospitalized children still need opportunities to just be kids. They help children and families cope with a hospital experience by providing emotional and developmental support, giving honest information geared to the child’s level of understanding and providing fun activities. The Child Life team works with medical and support staff to create a warm, child-friendly environment.

Their “Wish List” for the Child Life Closet is a guide of what you can bring to help. If you wish to bring any of the items needed on this list, we will have an area available for this the day of the race.
