Facing. Futures. Together.

Witness the healing power of play in Power Play 2021, presented by Discount Tire. In this special film, Phoenix Children’s Hospital patients are transformed into superheroes with the help of student fashion designers from ASU’s School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. As you watch their inspiring stories unfold, you’ll see the profound impact that play can have on children facing serious health challenges.
