Local Children's Hospitals

All funds raised through Star Jump Challenge will support Starlight programs.

Starlight Hero Wagon

When a child needs to move from their hospital bed to a treatment room, it’s a scary moment of change. The Starlight Hero Wagon transforms that moment with a fun ride and provides a source of comfort. 

Starlight Hospital Gowns

The transition from a child’s clothes to a hospital gown is one of the most stressful moments in a child’s hospital journey. Starlight Hospital Gowns transform that moment with comfort, joy, and inspiration.

Starlight Virtual Reality

Basic procedures like changing a dressing for a burn are highly traumatic for a child, often requiring them to be sedated. Starlight VR allows kids to “escape” and be immersed in different worlds while undergoing these procedures.

Starlight Nintendo Gaming Station

Hospital stays can be long, boring, and stressful. The Starlight Nintendo Gaming Stations provide kids with a sense of normalcy, distraction, and a way to connect with their friends, and siblings.
