The Champion Child Program is made up of 12 children with rare and/or undiagnosed conditions.
The program begins with each child becoming a spotlighted CC4C Champion Child for two years. Once accepted, the Champion Child is matched with a Champion Teammate, a Champion High School Team, participates in our year round CC4C events and is eligible for financial assistance for medical expenses insurances deny through our Financial Assistance Program. New support added to the Champion Child Program is the Well Being Program. The Well Being Program is currently in the early stages and has successfully proven to be an area of need in supporting our children and families.
The interactions with the Champion Teammates and Champion High School Teams provide the children with inspiring events to look forward to and the ability to attend and participate in team gatherings that would otherwise be impossible.
These experiences help distract the children from the countless medical visits and procedures they endure.
At the conclusion of the two year Champion Child Program, there is unmistakable growth in each child’s confidence, engagement in the community and hope for recovery.
