Add Their Name to Seattle Children’s Memorial Wall

Memorial WallSeattle Children’s Memorial Wall is an enduring way to recognize someone who has passed away. When the gifts in memory of an individual total $500, that person’s name is added to the Memorial Wall at the hospital, and remains on the wall for 20 years – a long-lasting reminder of a special person’s legacy.
