Big Change Roundup in Support of UVM Children's Hospital Kicks Off for 2022
Big Change Roundup Supports Vital Services During Difficult Times
Burlington, Vt. – The annual “Big Change Roundup for Kids” is officially underway. Over the next five weeks, from March 28 to April 29, civic organizations, community members, businesses and key partners including New England Federal Credit Union, Maplefields and Med Associates, Inc., will round up donations to support specialized care and vital services provided at The University of Vermont Children’s Hospital. The program is the largest annual fundraiser for the non-profit medical center, and is a joint project of 98.9 WOKO-FM and the UVM Children’s Hospital.
“The programs, services and equipment funded, thanks to the many who contribute to the Roundup, are why we can continue to provide the high-quality, child-friendly family-centered pediatric care that makes our UVM Children’s Hospital such a special place for the thousands of young patients in Vermont and Northern New York who need us to be there for them each and every year,” said Lewis First, MD, Chief of Pediatrics.
Funds raised last year supported innovative and essential programs, including: social support services for children in need or that were food insecure, mental health support for families of children with chronic illness, child life programs to help make children smile and emergency equipment that helped save lives.
