Be an CHAMpion—Join Champions for CHAM to support the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in this year’s New York City Marathon!
Since its opening in 2001, Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has served the most vulnerable children from the Bronx and beyond, providing the best care while also treating children with complex and life-threatening medical conditions. CHAM strives to help children have the opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. It is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community. CHAM is unique in serving every child regardless of the family's ability to pay.
In partnership with Albert Einstein College of Medicine, revolutionary discoveries by CHAM investigators have led to groundbreaking therapies, new models of care, and better outcomes for children. Each year, CHAM serves 250,000 patients over the course of 9,000 inpatient admissions, 55,000 emergency department visits, and 2,000,000 ambulatory care visits. Runners at Einstein are invited to join the Champions for CHAM team, offering another way that Einstein and Montefiore partner on behalf of children in the Bronx and beyond.
