Children’s Hospital Foundation, which supports CHoR, has designated the funds from the 2017 Dancing with the Richmond Stars for a very special project. Funds will be used to bring customized thematic environments to two MRI and CT rooms in CHoR’s Children’s Pavilion, transforming the rooms from simple diagnostic areas into calm and comforting spaces. The project will enhance the rooms with colors and designs that help reduce stress and anxiety and create a more positive experience for children and families.

Take a look at the image below for an example of a CT scan room at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago that has been outfitted with a special, child-friendly environment:

 

The 7th Annual Dancing with the Richmond Stars, ballroom dance competition modeled after the television hit, Dancing with the Stars, is presented by the MCVH Auxiliary of the VCU Health System and Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Competition will be hot and commentary even hotter with a panel of local celebrity judges evaluating the dancers. The judges will select a winning pair, but the biggest winner will be Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR), the beneficiary of this exciting and very entertaining event.

Our stars are learning and practicing their dances under the able direction of Eleanor Robertson at Rigby’s Jig Dance Studio, who is providing dance instruction, training space and professional dance partners.

We invite you to attend this one-time performance to cheer on your favorite dancers while supporting central Virginia’s children’s healthcare treasure.
