Race for Our Kids is Great Fun for a Good Cause

Each year, the Race for Our Kids benefits pediatric oncology at the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai. Every dollar raised is a chance for a new beginning for our patients and their families, and the continued success of this event is a tribute to the compassion of LifeBridge Health's employees and surrounding communities.

The event takes place on Sunday, September 29, 2013

"Our employees are always finding ways to give back," says Tina Manning, special events manager for LifeBridge Health. "It's one of the most rewarding aspects of my job."

Whether you run like a hare or find the tortoise's slow roll more your speed, starting or joining a team is the ideal way to make a difference while making friends. When you register on the Race for Our Kids website (just click on the "Register Online" button in the left sidebar), you'll have the option to start your own team, join a LifeBridge Health-affiliated team or register as an individual.

Even if you can't lace up your sneakers this year, you can still contribute by clicking a mouse. Just click on the "Donate Now" button on the left sidebar to make a general donation or to support an individual runner or walker, or a particular team. If you want to get in on the action by volunteering, just click on the volunteer tab at the top.

This year, you can use your preferred social media account to register for Race for Our Kids and October's Save-A-Limb Ride, Walk and Festival. If you're a Facebook fanatic or a tweeting fiend, you can keep your friends and family up to date on all your activity, and inspire them to donate. Though giving back is its own reward, there will be fundraising prizes, including iPads, sports MP3 players and running shoes.

  • This week in our #TeamLifeBridge spotlight, meet our Health Information Management Coders. This hardworking group of professionals is responsible for assigning codes that describe a patient’s care and diagnoses. These codes are then stored and used to support billing, quality reporting, and reimbursement programs. #LifeBridgeHealth #EmployeeAppreciation #Healthcare #Employees

  • Shoveling #snow is a moderate-intensity #exercise that often results in injury when done incorrectly. To avoid injury this season it’s important to take the extra time to be prepared, and use proper form and equipment – your legs, back and heart will thank you! #Winter #InjuryPrevention #WednesdayWisdom
