It's time to tee up!

SIU Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics is excited to be back at The Rail Golf Course again in support of our young patients. This year, we are thrilled to host On Par for Pediatrics (formerly Camp COCO golf outing) - a new name and mission, but the same exciting day of hitting the links. Gather your friends for a fun round of golf followed by a delicious dinner and prizes. Even more importantly, you provide support for children facing life-altering diseases while joining your friends for a friendly round of golf.

Save the Date for On Par for Pediatrics


Our pediatrics department has been an integral part of helping to care for the health of children in Springfield and surrounding communities. The funds raised at this year’s golf outing will support pediatric patients and their families, easing their financial burdens by providing overnight lodging, food or transportation for families whose child is receiving extended treatment.

Join us on June 3 for On Par for Pediatrics. Your sponsorship or registration will help children with chronic illnesses lead happier, healthier lives. Register online here.
