Run/Walk at Geller Park located at 512 Cynthia St., Heath, Ohio. Our first Annual 5-K is on Saturday, September 30th at 9:00 am. We are hoping to exceed 200 walkers/runners. We are a volunteer organization that is 100% dedicated to children suffering from burns and orthopedic difficulties due to injuries, sickness or birth. We are seeking support for this event. All proceeds go to Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
What began as one hospital in 1922 is now a world-renowned health care system with 22 locations throughout the United States, as well as, Canada and Mexico. Our official mission is “To provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special health care needs within a compassionate, family-controlled care environment.” All these conditions have one thing in common; they prevent children from experiencing the joys of childhood and a productive life. This mission is carried out without regard for the ability of a patient or family to pay.
Today Shriner’s Hospitals for Children are changing lives everyday through innovative pediatric specialty care, world class research and outstanding medical education.In the mid 1980’s, Shriner’s Hospitals for Children established the nation’s first spinal cord rehab program designed for children and teenagers.
In addition to patient care our hospitals are leaders in medical research in all four specialty areas, and maintains relationships with more than 60 medical teaching research facilities worldwide.
It is our hope that you will want to be a part of this important work. Sponsorship opportunities can be found here. Sponsoring businesses, organization and individuals will be recognized in many ways prior to, during and after the race.
