The LOLLIPOP Superhero Walk invites supporters to become a superhero for a day and celebrate the people who help us bring joy to hospitalized children, including their parents, siblings and caretakers, and the movie studios we partner with. And most of all, to celebrate the ultimate superheroes, the patients themselves!
Adorning ourselves in capes, masks and whatever else we believe we need to achieve superhero status, we will walk to raise awareness and funding for LOLLIPOP’s important in-hospital programs that provide pediatric patients and their family members with a fun escape from their daily reality.
Supporting the Cause
Everyone deserves some joy in their lives, especially children fighting chronic and life threatening illnesses. LOLLIPOP's mission is to bring that joy into hospitals around the country through the magic of movies and music. The films that are currently seen only in theaters, provide a moment of escape for the pediatric patients whose illness prevents them from going to the cinema and from just being a kid. We create excitement and diversion from the illness and daily medical treatments these children must face by rolling out the "red carpet," handing out special movie tickets and gifts, and having actors from the film visit whenever possible. Please join us in bringing magic to the lives of these very deserving kids! Never underestimate the power of a lollipop...
