A local real estate firm is challenging Dayton residents to stand up for pediatric patients.
The Connor Group announced its $1 million challenge grant to help build Dayton Children’s new patient tower. For every donation given during the Reaching New Heights campaign, the real estate group will match a dollar for dollar until the $1 million goal is reached.
“It’s important we continue to provide world-class spaces to care for our kids,” said Larry Connor, managing partner of The Connor Group.
The Connor Group Kids and Community Partnership’s donation will provide a special lounge for families with children being treated for cancer and blood disorders.

As part of the Reaching News Heights capital campaign, the hospital aims to raise a minimum of $25 million for the $153 million transformation of the 155-bed facility. Most of the remaining amount of the $153 million total will be covered by hospital resources and financing.
In 2015, hospital officials turned to the community to help raise the final $4 million of a $25 million capital campaign to help pay for the patient-care tower expansion and renovation project underway at the Valley Street campus.
The project will include a newly designed newborn intensive care unit with single-family rooms, new life-saving technology, larger single-family rooms, and upgraded family amenities.
Officials said no donation is too small.
