BENEFITING: UnityPoint Health Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2015
As a Registered Nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Blank Children's Hospital, I am able to see first hand the benefits of the wonderful donations made! I could make an entire list of the benefits of donations but two important things are that we are able to update equipment so we can better care for our patients as well as provide parents with minor necessities while their children are here with us! This is my first time running a half marathon and the training has not been an easy process as I have endured foot pain and sore muscles along the way, however, it will all be worth it! Thank-you for your donation to such a wonderful facility!
Be a Blank Children’s All Star!
