Brittany Hebert and her North Pole team from Sky High for Kids made a few special deliveries recently to Texas Children's Hospital. Along with Santa & Mrs. Claus, Hebert and the Sky High group magically transformed an area for inpatient kids into a Christmas carnival complete with festive music, face painting, juggling elves, lunch, and gifts of teddy bears, blankets and books. The goodies from Sky High put smiles on the children's faces, and one more gift, a $725,000 donation to the hospital, made the day that much more special.
Sky High has spent the last 10 years raising awareness and funding for pediatric cancer research for Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude, and has now added Texas Children's to their list of recipients. Later this month, Texas Children's will have a ribbon cutting ceremony to announce the new "Sky High for Kids Tumor Biology Center". Sky High donated a total of $2.3 million dollars to pediatric cancer research in 2017.
