Kohl's Cares for Kids
In 2000, Kohl's introduced the
Kohl's Cares for Kids® program to reinforce their commitment to children's health and education. Since the creation of the program, they have raised more than $150 million to support their mission, and CHKD is the recipient of their continued support along with 159 other hospital partners nationwide.
Thanks to Kohl’s Department stores, associates and customers, CHKD will receive $116,919 for a health-focused outreach program in our Hampton Roads community in 2011/12. Kohl’s Cares For Kids Family Forum will provide educational programs that address the real needs for children and families in our community.

Kohl’s Steps to Fitness Project for Elementary Schools
CHKD is offering a new pilot program, Kohl’s Cares for Kids Steps to Fitness Project. Two school districts have been identified to participate in our essay and proposal writing contest for 5th grade students. The Steps to Fitness pilot is designed to enhance the well being of children and families by providing educational information and hands-on learning regarding personal and family fitness. 5th grade students and their teachers take on the role of learning and demonstrating family fitness concepts to their entire school body. All students involved receive the Healthy Bear Steps to Fitness publication.
In addition, CHKD has teamed up with Quiet Riot a theater arts group from Pennsylvania, to present Steps to Fitness a 50 minute assembly program combining the hospital’s research in Children’s Health and the Quiet Riot’s unique entertainment style.
