Kid-friendly touches help our patients forget the grown-up world of treatment and just act like kids again. Part of our Teen Board’s mission, their philanthropic efforts in the community support the Red Wagon Roundup. These specially designed wagons transport children to playrooms, appointments, the cafeteria and other locations around the hospital. Wheelchairs are sometimes too large for the smallest patients, so these FUNctional rides help ease anxiety and make hospital rounds more enjoyable.
The Teen Board also raises funds to fill the red wagons with items included on patient wish lists. These small gestures make our kids smile big. Coordinate your own team, group or service club’s donation drive today. Or, make a donation and pull for the kids at Phoenix Children’s.
