New in 2019- The Kids Give Back™ School Program

A New Year brings new opportunities to give back! Help us by giving back to Cleveland Clinic Children’s in 2019 with your school! Our new Kids Give Back™ School Program is a community initiative that helps schools get involved with Cleveland Clinic Children’s by supporting our littlest patients. The School Program is a team effort – the challenge is to raise more money than the other classrooms. The teachers from the top two classes who raise the most will square off in a race around the school – on tricycles! The Kids Give Back™ School Program gives teachers and students the opportunity to rally around a cause together, while also providing a teaching opportunity about the importance of giving back. 100% of the dollars raised by your school will support Cleveland Clinic Children’s.

Maisie, One of Our First Kids Give Back™ Champions, Shares Her Story

Maisie Nowlin

Hi, I’m Maisie! I am a patient at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. When I was 6 years old I was diagnosed with a rare condition called aplastic anemia. I’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital. Sometimes I felt OK and other times I didn’t feel well at all. No matter what, my doctors and nurses always made me feel better. Because they took such good care of me, I’m now back at school. I even rode in my first VeloSano ride this summer! I am so thankful for the team that took care of me at Cleveland Clinic Children’s.

When I finally got to come home, my parents threw a BIG birthday party for me. We invited all of our friends and asked them to make donations to Cleveland Clinic Children’s instead of giving presents to me. It was the best way to celebrate!

There are a lot of other kids just like me who are still in the hospital. Would you consider supporting them so they can feel better and go home too?

Thank you so much for helping kids like me. Have lots of fun!

- Maisie
