2014 Children’s Red Balloon Run & Ride

2014 Children’s Red Balloon Run & Ride

This Saturday, Children’s Medical Center will hold one of its largest fundraising events: the Red Balloon Run & Ride.  The event, co-presented by Capital One and Denbury Resources, unites patients, employees, donors, and members of the community for a day of fun physical activity.

The proceeds from the Red Balloon Run & Ride go entirely toward Children’s Medical Center. Last year alone, participants raised $560,000. If you have not registered for the event, it’s not too late. Even if you don’t participate in the race or ride, we hope to see you there to cheer on those who do.

Philanthropy is such an important part of Children’s. No matter how big the contribution, each dollar goes toward making life better for children. Big Thanks to HP Mayor, Joel Williams III, whose passion for children drives him to sponsor and manage this event each year.  See you on the course!
