Event Description:

A valley-wide tradition, the annual Ignite Hope holiday candlelight walk is dedicated to bringing hope to patients and families battling illnesses during the holiday season. Whether at the hospital or at home, this meaningful event allows the community to come together in igniting hope of all. The Ignite Hope ritual began at Phoenix Children’s when friends and families of 15-year-old Katie Wagner, a patient who was diagnosed with cancer, held a candlelight vigil outside her hospital window. In the spirit of Katie and all patients, the candlelight tradition has continued on, to brighten the lives of thousands more patients.

Ignite Hope Has Gone Virtual. Like you, we’re disappointed that we can’t be together for Ignite Hope this year, but we are committed to showing our patients that although we’re not together, we are 100% with them in spirit this holiday season. And we know you are too! Here's how to get involved:

  • Sign up and receive a family pack of Ignite Hope candles and luminaria. You can help ignite hope and making Arizona shine, by lighting these candles and luminaria in your home, or sharing them with your loved ones.
  • Fundraise to help Phoenix Children’s provide world-class healthcare that is saving lives and bringing hope to our patients and their families.
  • Spread hope by taking a picture of your candles and luminaria and posting it to social media using #PCHIGNITEHOPE. Show our patients and families how you are helping to light up Arizona with hope this holiday season.
  • Tune in to our VIRTUAL Ignite Hope Program on December 12. See how your support ignites hope for our doctors, nurses, medical specialists—and most importantly, our patients and their families.
