We were so excited to be part of the inaugural Champions for Children campaign benefitting Covenant Children’s. Not only did this campaign raise vital funds to support the lifesaving work and family centered programs at Covenant Children’s, but it also highlighted Covenant Children’s, the only licensed children’s hospital between Ft. Worth and Albuquerque.

Through the campaign, stories of four true champion children—Camila, Madelyn, Wyatt, and Brooklyn—were shared. We have seen firsthand the compassionate care these families have received through some of their most vulnerable and challenging times. We jumped at the chance to support the partnership between local businesses and our children’s hospital to raise awareness and dollars.

You, members of our West Texas and Eastern New Mexico communities, heard the call and responded incredibly. Through partnering with 32 local businesses representing 93 locations, our communities raised $90,000 over two weeks by supporting businesses and making personal donations. Each of your contributions will directly support the life-saving work at Covenant Children’s. Thanks to each of you, for being a Champion for Children.
