Watch the Trailer for Jumanji 2: Welcome To The Jungle

Dating back to the highly successful movie premieres of The Polar Express in 2004 and Zathura in 2005 – which raised more than $1.5 M for end-of-life pediatric care –  Mr. Van Allsburg, has generously shared his talents to benefit our community’s youngest residents. This statewide premiere is yet another example of his continued commitment to shine a light on the important care provided to terminally and chronically ill pediatric patients and their families within the Anchors Programs for Children.
