Loyola Medicine 5K Supporting Pediatric Care & Research


We will be participating in the Loyola Medicine 5K for Kids on Sunday, June 4 to raise funds and awareness for pediatric health programs at Loyola Medicine.
Join us and make a difference in the lives of the children and families who turn to Loyola for their care!

Our son De'Andre spent many months and has had many surgeries at Loyola. De'Andre sustained a severe Traumatic Brain Injury back in 2013 and has many ongoing health issues. If it was not for Loyola Hospital, we would not have our son with us today. We are so greatful to have had such a great team of Doctors and Nurses. De'Andre is our Super Hero! He has shown us all strength and he has been an inspiration to so many people. Go Team DreDay!


I am participating in the Health, Hope & Heroes 5K on June 5 to support pediatric health care programs at Loyola University Health System. Each year, thousands of families turn to Loyola to care for their sick or injured children. By joining me or making a donation to this cuase, you are helping to celebrate health, inspire hope and become a hero for Loyola's youngest patients.
