Raising funds, friends and awareness for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters.
The King’s Daughters opened the doors of Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in 1961 and continues its support today with fund-raising, volunteering and advocacy. A not-for-profit organization with approximately 1,100 members throughout Hampton Roads, The King's Daughters raise funds, friends, and awareness for CHKD. In recent years, these funds have been used to purchase a highly-sophisticated pediatric ambulance that brings children from all over the region to CHKD, ventilators for the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit, medical cribs for use throughout the hospital and a high-tech therapy pool for use in physical therapy and rehabilitation. The King's Daughters established The King's Daughters Milk Bank at CHKD, and this year funds raised will go toward CHKD's Behavioral Health Program.
CHKD is the only free-standing children's hospital in Virginia and serves the needs of families throughout greater Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore and northeastern North Carolina. The hospital provides care to all children, regardless of their ability to pay. Last year, more than 650,000 visits were made to CHKD Health System caregivers for routine check-ups, complex illnesses, injuries, chronic conditions and more.
In addition to providing cutting edge medical care, CHKD is committed to helping families treat the issue of childhood obesity through their Healthy You for Life program and community-wide parent education efforts and sports clinics. The RunWalk for the Kids plays an important role in addressing this issue by not only providing much needed funds to support CHKD and its special programs, but the RunWalk for the Kids is a community-wide project designed to encourage exercise and healthy lifestyles in families and children. The event is a project of The King's Daughters to benefit Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters.
