Kids love to help kids. And it’s proven that children who learn to give to others at an early age will continue to be philanthropically involved throughout their lives. 

Kids Caring & Sharing offers students simple ways to help other children by fundraising for Riley’s pediatric research through their schools. Funds raised help Riley doctors and scientists search to find new treatments and cures for kid through cancer research, diabetes research, and research into many childhood heart, lung and genetic defects.

There are endless ways school groups can raise funds to support Riley’s pediatric research programs, including:

  • Spirit weeks
  • Penny wars
  • Jump-a-thons
  • Walks or runs 

The Indiana Association of School Principals and the Indiana Association of Student Councils recognize Kids Caring & Sharing for Riley Hospital as an official fundraising priority.

To learn more about ways your school and school corporation can get involved with Riley, contact Susan Miles at smiles@rileykids.org or (317) 759-6951.
