Joey's Joggers

For our family this event is about celebrating Joey's life and doing something positive from such a devastating outcome. Joey was born November 17, 2014. He was born with Heterotaxy. He spent three long months at Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL and never made it home. Proceeds from this race go directly back to Hope Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald house.

The Ronald McDonald House provides supportive home-away-from-home for families who are receiving medical treatment at Hope Children’s Hospital. We leaned on them during a very difficult time so we could remain close to Joey during his most critical moments. They provide logging, programs, and meals for families most in need. It is our goal to give back and support them so other families facing their darkest moments can feel comfort during their child’s stay.

Having a critically ill child is something that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Please consider making a donation to our cause to help families feel a bit more comfortable while managing work, finances, their family, and the health of their child (it’s not easy!). Many families come from out of state and relay on the generosity of the Ronald McDonald House.  

Please join our team, Joey’s Joggers, and join us for a virtual run/walk in Joey’s honor anytime between Sunday, June 6th and Sunday, June 13th. If you are unable to join this event please consider making a donation to our team.

Thank you for your support.
