Unfortunately, there will be no t-shirts for the 2020 event as we were able to stop the order prior to it going to press. We were able to convert that planned expense over to a donation for Children's Health. But, you can still show your support for Children's Health by wearing RED during our Virtual RBRR!there will be no t-shirts for the 2020 event as we were able to stop the order prior to it going to press.

What is Passion for Children's?

Passion for Children's is a grassroots fundraising campaign, designed for people of all ages, for the exclusive benefit of Children's Health. We encourage participants to pledge to raise a minimum of $100 annually, and choose a specific program, service, clinic and/or research center to benefit from their fundraising.

Everyone may not have the same cause, but Passion for Children's unites fundraisers through hope, courage, vision and determination to make a difference in the lives of children treated at Children's Health.
