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.

  • #LifeBridgeHealth employees put down their charts and stethoscopes and picked up paintbrushes, when the Employee Activities Committee hosted a "Paint Night" at #SinaiHospital earlier this week. Just one of the many great reasons to work at LifeBridge Health! #Painting #PaintNight #Teamwork #WorkFun

  • For #EarthWeek, #NorthwestHospital celebrated with a big yard sale! Instead of throwing away old equipment and office furniture, the hospital sold them at affordable prices so they could be #reused and #recycled. The money raised will support programs for our patients. #GoGreen #BeGreen #YardSale #Bargains #LifeBridgeHealth
