NICUSTRONG supports the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Hackensack Meridian Children's Health Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital. We're excited to host our 5th Annual NICUSTRONG Walk.

5th Annual NICUSTRONG Walk

September 25, 2022

9-11 AM 

Van Saun County Park- Paramus, NJ

Last year, we gathered both in-person and virtually with our amazing families and teams sharing their stories, NICUSTRONG journey, photos then and now and so much more. It was inspiring to see everyone reconnect. This year's walk will be held in person at Van Saun County Park. Stay tuned for more details on how we will gather and celebrate.

How does funding help? The annual NICUSTRONG Walk helps fund innovative treatment, cutting-edge equipment to provide exceptional care, much-needed research, and supports patient and family needs of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Hackensack Meridian Children's Health at Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital. 

Since its inception in 2018, money has helped fund:

  • Life-like manikins for vital education purposes;
  • Several parent programs;
  • Vital research to help predict neonatal respiratory outcomes through the mother's blood in the third trimester; 
  • A family support coordinator - funded in collaboration with March of Dimes - to provide valuable support and resources to families as they adjust to life in the NICU.

With your help, we can continue to support the needs of our #NICUSTRONG babies and their families!
