Shriners Hospitals for Children’s mission is to ensure that they provide the best care possible to allow children to dream and imagine all that they can be, all that they can do and all the places they can go. Through this whimsical representation, Shriners Hospitals for Children encourages children to think that there is no limit to what they can accomplish and that they can do whatever they set their minds to with the help of our team of experts and the family-centered approach offered at our 22 facilities.
Helping Kids Live their Dreams represents the mission of Shriners Hospitals for Children and its founding fraternity, Shriners International to provide expert medical care in a family-centered environment. Helping Children Live Their Dreams is a way to represent our wish to help children achieve what they set their minds to and to encourage them to dream big no matter the circumstances.

The two sporty bears represent two of our major signature events: The East-West Shrine Game which will be played on January 19, 2013 and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open played in October. Our signature events offer visibility and are a way to raise awareness and much needed donations for the health care system. The exposure received through these events allows us to tell our story to audiences who otherwise would not be exposed to our message. It is through events like these and the support of Shriners and the public in general that Shriners Hospitals for Children is able to continue its mission of Helping Kids Live their Dreams.
