Cardinals For Kids

Cardinals for Kids logo

Cardinals for Kids began in 2013 after planning the first Mini Cardinal Dance Marathon. The success of the dance marathon set the foundation for the launch of Cardinals For Kids. Since the first dance marathon, Cardinals For Kids has hosted many events on campus in order to help kids in our community who have the greatest health needs.

Working together with fellow San Antonio Catholic universities, St. Mary's and Our lady of the Lake, Cardinals For Kids helps raise money and awareness for the Children's Hospital of San Antonio Foundation. The Children's Hospital of San Antonio is San Antonio's only free standing, non-profit hospital.
