“… I’m with my people”

“Our family has participated in the CHOP Buddy Walk® for years. It’s always a great day and feel like I’m with my people. These families know the road we’ve walked and can share their insights. And now that my kids are older, we can help other families.”

— Carolyn, mother of Lily and Nate, 2018 Buddy Walk® Champions
