With locations across the Phoenix area, Mountain Park Health Center strives to serve the underserved with affordable pediatric care, dental, and cancer screenings. Sprinters can show sweat-support for the new Goodyear location by galloping at the grand opening, beginning at 7 a.m. The five-hour ribbon-cutting gala includes a 5K walk/run, a 1K sprint for kids, two children's face-painting tickets, and four tickets for inflatable games, which create a feeling of camaraderie with Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson simultaneously. Groupon buyers may roll into their VIP parking spot moments before the event and leave with a wealth of information gleaned from a complimentary tour of the Goodyear clinic, as well an event T-shirt.
Wrinkles don't fare well at Phoenix Laser & Rejuvenation Center. Blame it on the center's photofacials, microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and Botox injections, which are regularly prescribed for patients who want more youthful-looking complexions. The face isn't the only part of the body that receives attention, though. The staff also offers noninvasive laser treatments for removing hair and spider veins.
Founded in 1912 by a group of women, Arizona’s Children Association has spent the last century providing housing and care for children who have been orphaned or neglected. The organization now runs more than 40 programs that span every county in the state, serving more than 45,000 children and their families. The organization's foster-care program searches for loving families for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Families who are going through the adoption-certification process can find support through its adoption services. Arizona’s Children Association also recruits, trains, and supervises adoptive families and offers postadoption support services. In addition, a slew of prevention programs—including crisis nursery care, a financial-literacy program, preschool for low-income families, and parent resource centers—work in unison to help communities stop neglect and abuse.

To help reduce the stress associated with receiving medical treatments, each Banner Health pediatric center houses toy closets filled with new, unwrapped toys, books, and games donated by individuals and partner organizations. Children who have undergone a painful procedure, or who are experiencing anxiety in the hospital setting may choose an item from the toy closet to help comfort them during their visits. While Banner Health accepts all donations of new toys, the organization often faces a short supply of playthings for its youngest patients. Teddy bears and crib mobiles help to lessen the stress and discomfort infants may feel while staying at the pediatric centers, and the toys remain theirs to take home upon departure from the facilities.
Dr. Gerald Walman has been practicing eye surgery since 1979 and now clears vision with corrective procedures. Delinquent corneas cower before their reshaping LASIK lasers, which adjust the eye's internal curvature and bring the world, with the exception of fun-house mirrors, into crisp focus. They also brighten cloudy, cataract-afflicted eyes with implant surgeries and lift drooping eyelids with laser rejuvenation treatments.
