This year Ignite Hope is virtual, but it’s no less special than in years past.
We will light our candles and shine bright for Phoenix Children's Hospital, bringing hope and joy to patients and families during the holiday season - an especially tough time to be sick or injured. This year more than ever, the patients and families need our support. We hope you'll join our fundraising efforts!
Every contribution to Phoenix Children's Hospital has a direct impact. Donations from caring people like you make it possible to ensure the very best medical specialists, cutting-edge technology and family-friendly services are available without regard for a family's ability to pay. Thank you for investing in the life-saving work of Phoenix Children's.
Please join our team. Even though we are apart, we can still come together to make a difference to help support Phoenix Children's Hospital.
The inaugural Ignite Hope took place in December 2012, after Katie, a 15-year-old high school sophomore was diagnosed with a rare form of stage 4 cancer. While undergoing aggressive treatment at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Katie's friends from high school and her church youth group held a candlelight vigil in her honor at the Hospital. They wanted to give her something, and they did ~ the gift of hope.
Not only was Katie looking out her window at the hundreds of kids gathered for her, but other patients also received that same gift as they peered from their window.
That's how this new tradition was born at Phoenix Children's Hospital.
Katie passed away in September 2013, but her legacy continues to inspire the Valley each year.
AmTrust Bank, a division of New York Community Bank, has been a proud sponsor of this tradition for five years. We encourage and appreciate your continued support of this annual tradition of Ignite Hope for the children who are treated at Phoenix Children's Hospital and for the gift of hope. ~ THANK YOU!
