Walmart, Phoenix Children's and Emmett's Fight Working Together for a Great Cause. Part I

I am overwhelmed with all of the support and exposure our awareness campaign has achieved over the past three months.

For 20 years Walmart and Sam's Club's state wide, have been raising money to support Phoenix Children's Hospital (PCH). Last year together the two organizations raised over 1 million dollars. Wow! What a terrific voyage. For 2012 Phoenix Children's Hospital chose Emmett to be the "honor patient" for the fundraising campaign. 

The fundraiser kicked off with a huge bang! Six-hundred Walmart and Sam's Club employee's and management gathered together at the University of Phoenix Stadium (Cardinal's Stadium) for a pep rally, motivational speaking and for them to meet Emmett a surviving patient of PCH.

  1. What an awesome opportunity to share Emmett's story, spread awareness and raise money!

  2. That is so awesome! Whenever we see any opportunites to donate for children's healthcare, we do it! My husband saw Emmett's cute little face at Walmart and made a donation. One million dollars, WOW! The work that you are doing is amazing! Thanks again for letting me and everyone else know the dangers of these batteries.
