Homers for Health and K's for Kids is a season-long pledge program to benefit the patients and families at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. You can join our team by making a pledge as little as 25 cents per home run hit by a St. Louis Cardinals hitter or 5 cents per strikeout thrown by a Cardinals pitcher. We will also honor Matt Holliday, our founder of Homers for Health, by including his 2017 home runs with the New York Yankees in our total home run count for the season.
Thanks to the support of thousands of Cardinals fans, Homers for Health and K’s for Kids has raised $3.7 million for the hospital since Matt & Leslee Holliday began the program in 2012. In 2017, Matt Carpenter has taken over Matt Holliday’s role as Homers for Health Chairman, with Jedd Gyorko serving as his co-chair. Trevor Rosenthal and Adam Wainwright are once again representing the pitchers with K’s for Kids. They are excited to carry on what Matt and Leslee started for the kids of Cardinal Glennon for many years to come!
Thanks to your generosity, we have created child-friendly spaces in The Costas Center, Imaging Center and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. We’ve also improved technology that enhances the services provided to the precious children who are in need of exceptional care. Each year, donations to Homers for Health & K’s for Kids benefit the Children’s Fund to meet the immediate needs of the hospital. Proceeds from this season will support the ongoing needs of the hospital, including inpatient oncology care.
On behalf of all the patients, families and caregivers, we hope you will join us and make a pledge today, bringing hope, joy and laughter to the lives of Cardinal Glennon kids and their families. Every pledge, no matter how big or small, goes to support our lifesaving mission.
