Give for Children

Every day, local infants, kids and teens count on Sanford Children’s Hospital Bismarck for extra or unexpected care.

  • Child Life and music therapy to help kids cope with the fear and uncertainties of hospitalization
  • Financial assistance to help families with costs not covered by insurance
  • Lifesaving pediatric equipment like ventilators and monitors, and more

Give for GABR

For more than 25 years, funds raised through the Great American Bike Race (GABR) fund have helped local kids living with cerebral palsy and related conditions lead more full, independent lives. Your gift today could make a world of difference for a child by supporting basic necessities not covered by insurance like:

  • Adaptive bikes
  • Wheelchairs
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapy
  • Vehicle modifications, and more
