13th Annual Small Wonders Miracle Walk
Every year, hundreds of critically ill newborns are cared for in the neonatal unit at OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Many of them spend days, weeks, even months receiving life-changing and lifesaving treatment.
The 13th annual Small Wonders Miracle Walk benefiting the OSF Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will be held Saturday, September 21, at EastSide Centre in East Peoria, Illinois. Families will enjoy a 3K walk, silent auction, face painting, bounce houses, and a fun concert by Julie K.
Participants gather to celebrate, reconnect and remember all of the families who've received care in the neonatal unit. The event, organized by patient families, raises funds for family programming, educational classes, activities and medical equipment.
