Personal Page - Helen and Bella Bainbridge
Welcome to my Walk and Play L.A. page! My black standard poodle, Bella, and I are walking with Walk and Play L.A. to support Children's Hospital of LA's incredible Dog Therapy Program that supports tens of thousands of patients, family members, and hard-working staff every year.
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.
Dog therapy visits make the hospital a more welcoming, less frightening environment. Patients, families, and staff enjoy the daily round of visits. When Bella and I visit we are greeted with big smiles and warm welcomes. Bella eagerly reciprocates the kisses, pats, and hugs she receives from patients, families, and staff. The CHLA dog therapy program is an incredible volunteer program. Your support will provide a child with a carefree visit with a dog, laughing at its antics, treasuring its unequivocal love, and sharing in its care.
Walk and Play L.A. supports the only hospital solely dedicated to the health of children in Los Angeles.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
- Donate to my Page to help me reach my fundraising goal.
- Join the Walk and create your own fundraising page for Walk and Play 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 charitable gift will make a difference in the lives of many young patients and their families. Any amount, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and will help us create hope and build healthier futures for the families of Southern California and beyond.
Thank you -- Helen
