Champions for Children

Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) and the Champions of LLUCH are partnering together to provide special care for the children of our community. With over 160,000 children visiting the hospital each year, we know how important it is for kids to feel comfortable while receiving care. To us, helping children learn and grow is not just something we believe ... it is something we live. Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital corporate giving program consists of corporations and support organizations that have committed to an annual gift benefiting Children’s Hospital! Since 1997, Champions have raised over $10,000,000 and have continued to help in our fight to bring world-class health care to the children of our community. The program offers its Champion for Children a variety of recognition opportunities within the hospital as well as throughout the community.
