Family and Friends Rally Behind CHaD Family

Supporting the CHAD HERO race has enabled us to keep the memory of our beloved Brady alive.  Each year, our superhero family and friends join us in putting on our running shoes and team Brady t-shirts.  We run to support the child life team.  Although Brady was only part of the CHaD family for a short time, the care he received was stellar.  Everyone from the nurses, social workers, physicians, surgeons and child life specialists did their best to help our family.  After our son passed away, we wanted to do something to thank CHaD.

Throughout our ordeal, the child life team was there to hold our hands, sing a song, and provide emotional support to our family.  Sadly, the child life program doesn’t get reimbursed by insurance.  They needed private donations to help support their team.  We knew that our monetary donations could help fund this worthwhile position so that even more children and families could experience this help. Since 2012, we have raised over $25,000 for CHaD’s child life team.

The CHaD HERO race is an amazing event that helps us remember our son, give thanks to our local children’s hospital, and support the child life department.  Please be sure to say hi to any Team Brady members you see racing this fall.
