Michigan From the Heart

For  nearly 30 years, Michigan From The Heart has served as an inspiration to both University of Michigan student-athletes and the pediatric patients and families of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. On Thursday evenings, Michigan From The Heart arranges visits to the hospital by student-athletes who offer a welcome distraction by spending time with patients and families. Patients are then given the opportunity to watch the athletes in action by attending University of Michigan sporting events as special guests of the team.  

Michigan From The Heart  also host football tailgates and Disney trips in hopes of putting smiles on children’s faces and some joy into their hearts. The organization provides further support to these children through contributions to the hospital’s Child and Family Life department and by spearheading smaller, yet much needed initiatives that otherwise go unfunded such as the new, “Connecting Mom and Baby iPad Program.”

The funding to support this program is raised primarily through our annual golf outing, in which 144 golfers participate.

In addition to supporting activities that provide patients and their families with memorable experiences that might seem out of reach during a difficult time, the money raised from this year’s outing will continue to be used to fund Michigan From the Heart’s participation in NorthStar Reach. NorthStar Reach is a camp that provides children with serious health challenges a chance to get away and just be kids. With your participation, we can continue efforts towards providing these experiences for children that are going through challenging times.

Michigan From the Heart is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization operated entirely by unpaid volunteers. The program has been extremely successful in helping children in need because of the generous support of people like you.  We appreciate your support of the Michigan From The Heart at the 22nd Annual Golf Classic.  

Go Blue!
