The brothers and sisters of patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital were recently recognized for their important contributions to their families during the annual Sibling Star Day event. With a theme of “Game On,” the event was coordinated by the hospital’s Child Life Program and featured a day of games and fun for siblings ages 4 to 19.
Siblings kicked off the ceremonies with a red-carpet walk from the entrance of the Patient Care Center to the Danny Thomas/ALSAC Pavilion. Employees and volunteers lined the route, cheering and applauding the honorees. Inside the pavilion, siblings and their families enjoyed lunch and a recognition ceremony. Siblings received star-shaped trophies to honor their contributions as part of the patient care team.
In addition, participants enjoyed a variety of fun activities and played oversized board games.
