Happy 4th of July! At Children’s National, patients and their families are able to take part in the 4th of July celebrations in the Bunny Mellon Healing Garden! The philanthropy-funded garden provides patients and their families with the opportunity to get some fresh air and enjoy its scenic views of Washington D.C. (and it’s perfect for viewing 4th of July fireworks!).
“Being an Ambassador for Terp Thon allowed me to open my eyes and helped me realize that the patients at Children’s National are my heroes, and I hope that one day I can be as strong as them. Their strength and courage gave me the ability to enable, not only myself, but my entire Greek chapter to raise over $50,000 and make $734,617.10 miracles For The Kids.” - Gianna Dano, 2018 Alpha Omicron Pi Ambassador.

Today we are celebrating the birthday of the Washington Nationals Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National! This philanthropy-funded complex provides education, diabetes management skills, and support for both patients and their families!

We couldn’t be more proud to congratulate our very own Allison Herskovitz on being named one of Dance Marathon’s 2018 Distinguished Leaders! This prestigious award is given to just 20 graduating seniors across the country that have made an “exceptional impact within their Dance Marathon program, on their individual campus and for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.” We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this award! Allison truly exemplifies what it means to be For The Kids. The lasting effects of her hard work and dedication will most definetly be felt by the Terp Thon community in the years to come!
