SMALL WONDERS MIRACLE WALK
The 6th Annual Small Wonders Miracle Walk & Silent Auction benefiting Children's Hospital of Illinois Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) held on October 20 was a wonderful success! Nearly 400 walkers gathered to celebrate, reconnect, and remember all of the families who have received care at Children's Hospital of Illinois NICU. The walk, organized by NICU graduate families, raised more than $30,000 for family programming, educational classes and activities! Families enjoyed a 3k walk, silent auction, face painting, jumping balloons, and a fun concert from Julie K.
