Team Smiley at The Walk for Children’s Hospital

Hello Smiley friends – Josie here! On June 3, Smiley and the team had the opportunity to go to The Walk for Children’s Hospital at Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park. The walk had over 4,000 participants and raised over $787,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC!

To kick off the walk, several children were featured in a patient champion ceremony parade. This parade signified the great strength and courage of the children who have been or are currently being treated at Children’s.  Below is a picture with Smiley hanging out with the leader of the parade, Jimmy! Smiley loved meeting Jimmy and the rest of his family.

After the walk, Smiley gave out lots of hugs and high fives to congratulate all of the kids. He even got to spend some time with his friends, Belle and the Beast! Together, Smiley and the team had the best time spreading some smiles for a great cause.
