Why We Walk
Cincinnati Walks for Kids began in 2006 to help give our patients, families and supporters a way to give back to the medical center.
So many of our patients and their families deal with tremendous emotional and physical challenges.
We wanted to give them a day to be with other families who are facing similar challenges. To support the medical center and the caregivers who help them every day. To celebrate the triumphs and accomplishments they've had along their medical journey.
At the walk, kids and families, who may not have many opportunities to socialize and meet with friends, can do so in an environment that is supportive and inclusive.
We walk to celebrate and honor our patients and our families. Their strength, their hope, and their dedication to one another are what inspire us every day. All of you are at the heart of all we do. Thank you.
