Cincinnati Walks for Kids 2017

Sweet Caroline


Our daughter Caroline was born October 6th, 2016 with an unknown lung disease, and despite the amazing care she received at Cincinnati Children's, passed away October 30th.  We found soon after Caroline’s passing that she had congenital alveolar dysplasia, an exceedingly rare condition in which her lungs stopped developing at a microscopic level around 15 weeks of gestation. It is so rare that there are less than 15 cases ever reported and it is not detectable prenatally.

After Caroline's passing it became our goal to honor her in a meangingful way and we established the Caroline Clay Vitale Memorial Fund to support infants with rare diseases and their families.

In honor of Caroline's birthday, we are walking in the 2017 Cincinnati Walks for Kids!  Please join us in person or virtually!  By supporting the Sweet Caroline team you are making a donation directly to the Caroline Clay Vitale Memorial Fund.  Thank you for your support of Cincinnati Children's, Caroline, our entire family, and most importantly, other families affected by illness.

Our team will be joining thousands of patients, families and supporters of Cincinnati Children’s at Cincinnati Walks for Kids to raise money to help advance cures and improve care for kids and families. Please sponsor us!  

Cincinnati Walks for Kids is more than just a fundraiser - it's a great day of family fund and celebration, all for a great cause.  Now more than ever, each of us can make a difference in the life of a sick child.  With your help, we can Change the Outcome for kids here and around the world.
