Our two-mile course through campus lake is easy enough for anyone to handle, but for those filled with competitive spirit, there are prizes available. There will also be a prize for the top fundraiser.  The price to register will be $25 until March 20th. After, the registration price will be $30.

Story

SIUC Timmy Global Health is a chapter of the non-profit organization, Timmy Global Health. Timmy Global Health expands access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today’s most pressing global health challenges. To achieve this goal, Timmy sends medical service teams to support the work of international partner organizations and channels financial, medical, and human resources to community based health and development projects. Through our work, we strive to empower volunteers to lead the fight for global health equity and help deliver the promise of a healthy future – one patient at a time. 


The money raised by our chapter gets used for our partner site in Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic. The money will be used to help promote sustainability of the site while we are not there. During our last medical service trip in August 2019, we were able to visit five communities and see 556 patients with 59 patients referred to public health facilities over the course of five days.  A lack of health access persists in this area – especially for the large population of Haitian migrants that have traveled to these areas looking for work. Many of the communities that Timmy serves across this site are bateys—and are the most traditionally impoverished and underserved areas of the country.

 
Our overall goal for the semester is to raise $3000.
