About The Runway

The Runway is a contemporary lunchtime fashion show curated by top Philadelphia-area boutiques and designers. Their up-to-the-minute looks are modeled by local celebrities and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia patients and supporters. The Runway benefits community impact programs at CHOP. These programs address social and economic factors that can negatively affect health such as literacy, safe housing, nutrition and more.
