Banner Children's Open for 2022
JW Marriott Desert Ridge Wildfire Golf Club
Let the good times roll!
Banner Children’s and the Banner Health Foundation invite you to participate in the Banner Children's Open on Friday, April 8, 2022 at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Wildfire Golf Club. Proceeds will benefit programs at the three Banner Children’s facilities in Arizona.
The Big Shamble
Are you ready to shamble? This year’s Banner Children’s Open features four challenges similar to those on the Golf Channel’s super popular Big Break reality television program, combined with a traditional shamble format. Challenge holes, creatively — and generously — designed and built by HKS Architects, KT Fabrication, McCarthy Building Companies and W.D. Manor Mechanical Contractors, are peppererd throughout the course. Teams will be scored on their overall golf game and separately, based on the team’s performance on the challenges. Two top scoring teams make it to the Final Challenge — a nail-biting shoot out that has become legendary.
Creating a positive experience for hospitalized children — that is the foundation of Child Life at Banner Children’s medical facilities. Working with pediatric patients, their parents and siblings, too, Child Life Specialists use a variety of tools and skills to reduce stress and anxiety, while promoting normal growth and development. Through play, pre-operative teaching and even distraction and coping techniques, these specialized — and, very special — professionals become invaluable resources for the entire family. This year’s Banner Children’s Open will benefit Child Life programs throughout the Valley and Tucson. Just a few of the services provided by Child Life teams include:
- Medical Play
- Sibling Support
Interacting with their Child Life Specialists, Banner Children’s pediatric patients gain so much. Whether they’re learning what to expect during an upcoming surgery, paying a visit to the beloved Toy Closet, or just playing like an everyday kid—the impact of the Child Life program is clear, present and necessary.
