My love of running and my career at UnityPoint Health are intersecting as I embark on running the IMT Des Moines Marathon Relay with a team of my amazing co-workers this October. We are part of the Blank Children’s All Stars race team!
As members of the Marketing & Communications team, we don't directly impact patient care but we get to see the amazing work Blank Children's Hospital does on a daily basis and always have patients in our minds as we work each day. Running the marathon relay to raise money for Blank is one way we have chosen to make a direct impact on patients.
Collin and I have experienced the care at Blank first-hand when Cora was an infant. We were scared but Blank provided the best care and compassion a mom and dad could ask for. We hope and pray we won't need the services of Blank for our kids again but there are many out there who are fighting a battle and need the amazing caregivers, technology and procedures at Blank to live a fulfilling life.
Thanks in advance for helping me raise funds to benefit Blank Children's, specifically the expansion of their Pediatric Therapy clinic!
