Through Darkness I Shine

The Stories of Connor and Mia

Every year, Shriners Hospitals for Children selects two National Patient Ambassadors to represent the health care system’s patients. We are proud to introduce our 2020-2021 National Patient Ambassadors Connor and Mia, and share their incredible stories.

Connor’s Birthday Impact Parade

Connor Wright’s Birthday Impact Parade caught the community’s recognition. Connor asked the community one simple question. Can you make an impact? $5 a car did exactly this on his birthday raising over $1,100 on a short birthday impact parade. The community recognized Connor for this by choosing him to be the winner of the Hometown Hero award!” 


The event is used as a platform to inform and educate families about Shriners Hospitals for Children. The hospital is staffed with elite surgeons, nurses, therapists and clinicians, which is all available to families without concern of monetary situations or insurance. The funds we raise help aid the hospital to help all families with continued care and research.

Thank You for Supporting Sycamore Shriner Kids


We have created an Amazon Wish List of items that would be helpful for us to use as gifts to pair with other items for our raffle and silent auction items. Each year we have people ask if there are specific things we need so we have compiled a list that includes a variety of items and price points. This is a great list to share with others when they ask “What can we do to help?”  All items will be shipped directly to us saving you the time of going to the store or delivering them yourself. You will be recognized for your donation unless you specify differently.
