Friends of Children’s Hospital raises funds for the only hospital in Mississippi primarily through special events. We annually host several fundraisers in the metro Jackson area and also receive funds from events hosted by generous businesses and organizations throughout the state.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with new organizations across Mississippi to spread awareness and build support for Children’s of Mississippi, the flagship hospital for Children’s of Mississippi.

0.5k – A Run for Everyone
The first ever Mardi Gras 0.5k – A Run for Everyone event was a great time in the Township of Colony Park while participants walk, ran or strolled the sidewalks in front of the stores to collect beads, king cake, samples, etc. and enjoyed an after party that included food, fellowship and even a magic show! We had over 30 Raffle Items that were given away at the end of the night. We hope everyone had a great time and look forward to next year’s event!

for Children Project
The annual BankPlus Light-A-Light for Children is near and dear to Mississippians, especially those whose lives have been touched by the Batson Children’s Hospital. Inspired by the patients and their families who must spend the holidays in the hospital, it is our goal to make their time there as special as possible.
