Run, walk, skip, or dance to help bring joy and delight to patients and their families at Seattle Children’s Hospital by supporting Room Circus Medical Clowning this weekend at the Send in the Clowns 5k. Room Circus professional clowns, a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity,  make hospital rounds two days per week, delivering music, circus arts and magic, all accompanied by hilarious physical comedy. They help alleviate stress and isolation, as well as provide laughter as a vital component of health and well-being


“My daughter’s time in the hospital was much less traumatic and troubling with your kookiness to ease her through the difficulties she faced. We are grateful beyond words.”

— father of cancer patient
