2023 - 2024 Programs Funded by:

In the Spring of 2018, Sofia's Hope launched this program whereby on a bi-annual basis we invite patients and their families to an all expense paid day at Zoo Miami.  Transportation to and from the hospitals is provided courtesy of Miami Tour Company, Lunch for all is also included.  Activities vary but have included a one-hour guided walking tour of Africa and the Florida Everglades, rides on the Carousel, feeding the giraffes, tram tour of the zoo, and "Creature Feature" presentation.  After lunch families are free to enjoy the zoo on their own, with many spending time at the water park.  At the end of the day, each patient and their siblings receive an adopt-an-animal gift package as their souvenir. 

Due to COVID our in-person Field Trips to Zoo Miami have been postponed and instead we have invited families with children facing a childhood cancer diagnosis to join us via Zoom every 3-4 months for a free 30-minute interactive program, where they learn about various animals, their environments, adaptations, etc.  After their time with the Zoo Guides, participants, led by our partners at ClayWorld make their own unique clay project related to the visit's theme.


We will be scheduling more visits in the coming months and hopefully hosting in-person event soon.  If you want to learn more about these visits, please email us at or click here to register.
