About Stand

Stand For The Kids was created as a one-day event to unite the nation to stand in support of children’s health. Join thousands of people from across the nation as we come together, raising funds and awareness for sick and injured children, and the amazing Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals that provide them with critical treatment and services.

Together, we will stand in a symbolic gesture to honor the dedicated doctors, families, friends and supporters who spend countless hours and sleepless nights standing by a child in need. In standing for the kids, we will take a step toward a vision of a world where no child, regardless of injury, illness, or ability to pay, is denied the care of a dedicated children’s hospital.

We believe that saving kids’ lives is something we can all stand for.
