On Saturday, October 15th, a team of Morris-Jenkins employees and friends helped build HOPE for patients and families at Levine Children’s Hospital at the 16th Annual HopeBuilder’s 5k!
Specifically, we raised money and ran for Xander Vanover as “Team Xander”!
Levine Children’s Hospital has always been very close to Morris-Jenkins’ hearts. A couple years ago, we decided to celebrate our 50 years in business by pledging $500,000 to fund the Special Recognition Program, which is designed to help celebrate patient’s special milestones during their stay at the hospital, such as end of treatment, receipt of a new kidney/liver/heart, birthdays during hospitalization, and more.
In addition to these yearly donations, we like to stay involved with Levine Children’s Hospital. We had so much fun at the 5K!
We had even more fun raising money in Xander’s honor! Our initial goal was $4,000. But thanks, in part, to a fundraising competition within the Morris-Jenkins team, we ended up raising $5,849!!
The fundraising competition also resulted in some interesting attire for the race… but that just made it more fun!
