Ignite Hope – West Valley

Date(s) – 12/14/2019
3:00 pm – 7:00 pm



‘Tis the season to Ignite Hope across the Valley. The 8th Annual Ignite Hope, presented by Pizza Hut and 1Wish, returns Saturday, December 14. As Phoenix Children’s Hospital expands its reach across the state Ignite Hope will take place at two Valley locations – the original at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and a new tradition in the West Valley at Phoenix Children’s Southwest Valley Specialty Care Center. Both events will take place simultaneously.


Each anticipated event combines a holiday candlelight walk to show support for families coping with illnesses or injuries during the holiday season and a brief program showcasing stories of hope. For many the event has become an annual family tradition and opportunity to give back to the local community. All proceeds from participant fundraising efforts benefit the Hospital’s Hope Fund.


The festivities kick off at North High School (1101 E. Thomas Rd., Phoenix) in Central Phoenix, and Canyon Breeze Elementary School (11675 W. Encanto Blvd., Avondale) in the West Valley. Each location’s event will include a family-friendly festival with face painting, superhero appearances, music and caroling, refreshments and an appearance from Santa himself. Registered walkers 4 years of age and older will receive battery-operated candles and commemorative t-shirts.
