Team Starlight Breakfast 2024

Team Starlight

Every mile helps a hospitalized kid smile

When a child becomes hospitalized, their world can feel uncertain and overwhelming. That's why charity runners and passionate supporters join Team Starlight. Whether you walk or run, every mile helps a hospitalized kid smile. Donations help place Starlight programs in our network of more than 700 hospitals to deliver happiness and empower resilience – improving kids' abilities to cope with challenges.  

For Starlight runner Julie, she's understood first-hand the happiness Starlight programs can bring and runs to give back to help more families like hers. Here is her story.
