Go the Distance for Cincinnati Children’s is a family-friendly timed 5K and 1-mile fun run/walk. All proceeds will benefit the life-changing—and life-saving—work of our beloved children’s hospital, one of the oldest and most distinguished in the nation. The fun continues after the race and walk. We’ll have food, games and entertainment—strollers, wagons and wheel chairs welcome.

What about voices from Indiana? We travel to your hospital monthly for the care of our disabled son.

I was sent this but do not live in Boone, Kenton or Campbell. I live 35/ 45 mins farther south in Owen County but still travel to Cincinnati Children's.

Our disabled daughter has been a patient at Children's for 27 years . She has one wheel in adult care and one wheel at Children's. Are disabled adults like her represented? We live in Kenton County Ky . Have appointments at 3333, 3430, Green Township, Mason, and the KY. Location

This is Leica. She is one of our facility dogs. Her job is to be a calming presence for our patients and families. Today is her 5th birthday. She looks great in party hats 14/10.

We are so thankful that Sydnis recent procedure went well. But, we are saddened to lose Sydnis airway specialist, Dr. Robin Cotton. The renowned doctor at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital.  He Perfected airway reconstructive techniques that restore a mute childs voice. In Sydnis case, he performed reconstructive surgery on her airway twice, to successfully enable her to live and thrive without a traech tube 5 years ago. He is retiring after 52 years. We are thankful God directed us to his care and will be forever grateful to him and then entire ENT team!! 🙌🙌
