Why Support CHOP?

Help Change a Child’s Future

This year’s event benefitted CHOP’s Division of Orthopaedics, one of the largest and most active pediatric orthopaedic centers in the world.


Orthopaedic conditions can threaten a child’s ability to walk, run and even breathe. For more than 120 years, CHOP’s Division of Orthopaedics has provided safe, state-of-the-art care for the full range of pediatric orthopaedic conditions, from diagnosis through recovery. The Division is led by world-renowned physicians with a specialized understanding of how orthopaedic conditions affect the developing child. Their overarching goal: help kids live the most active, independent lives possible.

Last year’s Cheers for CHOP raised more than $610,000 for CHOP’s Division of Pulmonary Medicine.
