Circle K is here to Change Kids’ Health

This month, Circle K is supporting local kids! From October 7th through October 31st, swing by your local Circle K and give back in support of Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Your donation can change the lives of kids like Lexi.

Lexi was diagnosed with scoliosis at just four years old, but for the first few years it didn’t seem too bad. Her doctors advised her parents to wait and watch. At nine, she began wearing a back brace at night with the hope of decreasing the curve in her spine. After a year, it was clear surgery would be the next step. Her mom – a nurse – knew that spine surgery could mean a long, hard recovery. But Lexi was a good candidate for a new procedure called ApiFix. Just two hours after major surgery Lexi was walking, talking, and smiling! She went home the next day and now, one year later, there’s nothing she can’t do, including playing softball and basketball!

Circle K stores have raised $19 million for CMN Hospitals since the partnership began in 2000. We are grateful for the continued support of businesses like Circle K. The campaigns are fundamental to the success of our hospital, and their hard work and effort does not go unnoticed.
