A champion fights for and protects a cause. As a member of the Champions Society, you can help to ensure Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands patients and their families are cared for by the best physicians right here in the Midlands.
The Champions Society is an annual giving society of Prisma Health Midlands Foundation and the Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands Board. The Society is led by a volunteer committee and comprised of donors who pledge to contribute a minimum of $1,000 annually.
Funds contributed by Champions Society members support the Pediatric Subspecialist Fund at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands. The purpose of fund is to support the recruitment of pediatric subspecialists, associated practice start-up expenses, the establishment of new programs directed by these subspecialists and/or to purchase necessary equipment.
Pediatric subspecialists are necessary in our community for the diagnosis and treatment of children’s complex medical conditions. Examples of subspecialists include pediatric endocrinologists, cardiologists, neurologists and gastroenterologists. These physicians are difficult to recruit because they are limited in number nationally in comparison to demand.
By joining the Champions Society, you are helping Children’s Hospital ensure we have all the doctors our children need, right here in Columbia, so that families won’t have to travel long distances for care by a pediatric subspecialist. Last year, the Champions Society provided more than $74,000 to support pediatric subspecialty programs.
Society members will have an opportunity to meet Children’s Hospital physicians to better understand the critical need for these subspecialists and learn more about the great work being done at Children’s Hospital.
Champions Society members receive the following benefits:
Membership in the Champions Society simply requires a gift of $1,000, or more, payable over a 12-month period. Gifts may be made in honor or memory of a loved one or caregiver. Donations of a lesser amount also are welcome.

We’re celebrating the 30th birthday of Walk for Life! For years, we’ve been walking and running for Prisma Health Breast Center in Columbia, S.C. We’re moving to a virtual Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon, 5K + 10K this fall. You can lace up and get moving in your own neighborhoods or nearby parks—all while continuing your support of patients and families faced with breast cancer.
At this time, it’s best for some medically fragile children to stay home. To help reduce any risk of these children being exposed to COVID 19, pediatric subspecialists and team members have been hitting the road in the Prisma Health Mobile Health Unit to see the children in their own communities.
They’re “Taking Children’s Hospital on the Road,” and we’re committed to keeping those wheels turning! Champions Society and Rising Champions, annual giving societies for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands, invite you to be part of their campaign to support this incredible mobile program for the kids.
