EVENT: 2013 GO! For A Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
I am running the St. Louis Go! marathon to raise money for the HavenHouse located in Creve Couer. HavenHouse St. Louis is the only hospitality home in St. Louis serving patients of all ages, all illnesses, from all medical centers. With the mission to provide the comfort of home and a community of support for families traveling to St. Louis, HavenHouse expands access to healthcare for underserved patients who must leave the comfort of home to receive life-saving cures and treatments. The primary medical conditions facing patients and families in need of housing and supports include premature birth, cancer treatments, cardiac care, orthopedic and reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitation therapies and transplants. In just seven years, HavenHouse has served over 19,000 families and 50,000 individuals. The need for these critical services continues to rise.
The families pay a minimal cost of $35 a day, but some cannot afford to pay anything. Lodging, meals and transportation are provided with each care day.
