We hope this finds you doing well.
We wanted to share some exciting news.... We've created a team of friends that together, as a relay, we will be running the DSM Marathon for the Blank Children's Hospital All Stars team. As part of the All Stars Team, we are raising money to support the Neonatology Unit at Blank. Your donation will go towards providing exceptional care towards newborns that were born with complications from premature birth. We hope to raise enough money to purchase a new NICU bed. The Neonatal team at Blank Children's Hospital is committed to ensuring all premature babies receive care that is comprehensive, state of the art and family centered. Thankfully, many of us haven't needed to know this, but Blank Children's Hospital has been trailblazing the way for premature babies since 1972. This is when the unit first opened in Des Moines. Additionally, in 2001 our children's hospital was one of the first units in the world to offer private room care for the family of a premature baby. Since then, may other health care systems have followed their lead. Please consider donating!
Thank you for your support.
Kim, Marcie, Rachel, Sue and Trish
