You Can Make a Difference

AdventHealth's Champions for Children is a group of elite professionals looking to make a lasting impact in the lives of children and families in Central Florida by strategically supporting hospital's child-based initiatives.

Champions for Children make a difference by supporting many needed services that are not covered by insurance, but are essential to our children and families during and after their care. We accomplish this through volunteer activities, fundraisers and networking events. Some of the benefits of becoming a Champions for Children member are:

  • Invitations to Champions for Children networking events and AdventHealth special events.
  • Opportunities to vote on Champions for Children fundraising priorities.
  • Exclusive volunteer opportunities that allow members to engage with AdventHealth for Children’s patients and families.
  • Tax deduction for your membership (according to IRS rules and regulations).
