BENEFITING: PATIENT AIRLIFT SERVICES
ORGANIZER: PATIENT AIRLIFT SERVICES
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thank you for visiting my NYC Marathon fundraising page. I am running on behalf of Patient AirLift Services (PALS). PALS arranges free flights for critically ill children, adults and veterans who are in need of compassionate air transportation to their out of town or out of state medical treatment facility. Patients are often already in financial distress due to their illness and cannot afford their medical transportation costs on their own. PALS works daily to fill flight requests to hospitals throughout the Northeast. They fly patients receiving treatment to and from hospitals such as Memorial Sloan Kettering, Shriners Children’s Hospital in Boston, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Weil Cornell Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Walter Reed Medical Center, National Institute of Health, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and many others. They also fly children and their families to illness specific summer camps, such as cancer or burn camps, allowing them to be among similar kids, experiencing normalcy. PALS for Patriots take our United States Veterans to major league baseball games to help them recover from post-traumatic stress syndrome and other effects of being engaged in war activity. PALS is a great charity and I am training hard to run on their behalf. Thank you for your donation!
