Virtual Walk for Amazing: Walk. Jump. Play. Make a difference.

Every year, Walk for Amazing raises much-needed funds and awareness for Children’s Minnesota. This year is no different.  It’s a chance to connect with friends and family, a way to show your gratitude to the caregivers and medical providers of Children’s Minnesota, and an opportunity to move, shake, and take part in something that makes a real difference.

How to get going

The official Virtual Walk for Amazing event will be from May 3–14, where go-getters and funseekers just like you will be dancing, running, hula-hooping, juggling and getting their move on to raise funds. Registration is free—all you have to do is commit to doing one healthy activity a day, every day for 10 days.

There are so many ways to get involved, and we’ve made it extra-easy to participate in this year’s virtual event. Just register now, and start asking for donations and recruiting members for your team. And since it’s a virtual event, it’s a great chance to connect with friends and family, whether they’re across town or across the country! Just want to make a donation? We’ve made that easy too!

The real difference you’ll make with every donation

As with every Walk for Amazing, participants can sign up as part of a team or as an individual, and raise donations to help Children’s Minnesota continue its mission as a nonprofit health system. Every donation raised by the Walk for Amazing will support our most important initiatives:

  • No child turned away, ever. Nearly half our patients rely on Medicaid, which reimburses only 70¢ for every $1 of services. We rely on donations to cover the rest.
  • Supportive care services. We offer unique care beyond medical services, such as music therapy, interpreter services for non-English-speaking families, and specialized support designed to help patients and families in challenging times.
  • Clinical excellence. We deliver world-class pediatric care, right here in Minnesota, including cutting-edge technology, facilities and research that’s changing—and saving—lives.
