Mona & Maxx's Page for Dog Therapy
Welcome to my Walk L.A. page! I am excited to be part of the inaugural Walk L.A. in support of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. I am raising funds for the Dog Therapy Program at CHLA, of which Maxx and I are a proud part of.
More children receive care from CHLA than any other hospital in the region—and often CHLA comes to the rescue for children when other hospitals run out of medical options for their care. Walk LA is the walk that supports the only hospital solely dedicated to the health of children in Los Angeles.
Our Dog Therapy program offers emotional support to patients, thier family and the staff at CHLA. Research has shown that animal therapy is effective in lowering blood pressure and decreasing stress, while also increasing mood-boosting endorphines and easing a patient's pain level. Maxx and I especially enjoy visiting the children, marveling as they light up when we enter their room. We are able to provide some moments of happiness to children who are not always feeling their best. It's extremely rewarding and Maxx LOVES his "job".
We are part of an incredible team. Here are a few ways you can get involved and help us out:
• Donate to my Page to help me reach my fundraising goal.
• Join the Walk and create your own fundraising page for Walk L.A.!
I hope you’ll join me at the walk and help support my fundraising efforts with a donation to Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many young patients and their families.
This program is near and dear to our hearts. Any amount, great or small that you can contribute, will be greatly appreciated!
Maxx and I THANK YOU!!
