UPDATE: The Children’s Health Holiday Parade has officially been canceled due to the threat of inclement weather.
Mark your calendars: on December 3, Consilium team members will once again take part in the annual Children’s Health Holiday Parade, one of the largest parades in America. The parade, now in its 29th consecutive year, will step off on Commerce Street at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the streets of downtown Dallas.
Consilium team members will volunteer in several roles throughout the parade, including as banner carriers, merchandisers, and even a clown or two. We could not be more excited to again take part in this historic event, which provides free holiday fun for local families and strengthens the Children’s Health System and its ability to care for Texas children. In addition, the event provides a truly unforgettable experience for some of the hospital’s pediatric patients.
This year, 25 special Children’s Health patients were selected by medical staff to experience the magic of the parade from atop some of this year’s coolest floats. The children, who range in age from 5-16, are all residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth area; make sure to wave as they go by!
Consilium Cares, the company philanthropy program, is dedicated to fulfilling the company mission of strengthening local communities. Through the initiative, Consilium team members have volunteered at local charities that include the North Texas Food Bank and Carter BloodCare as well as participating in events like the Salvation Army Angel Tree program and the “Christmas is for Children” Radiothon.
