At TSRHC, we are very lucky to have generous friends that support the hospital’s mission to treat patients regardless of the family’s ability to pay. But what is truly special is when these generous friends happen to be patients. Here are three recent and unique stories about our patients giving back to TSRHC!
Crawfish for the Curve
TSRHC patient Rowan, age 8 of Dallas, and her family held their second annual crawfish boil, Crawfish for the Curve, at their house in Dallas this spring. The proceeds were used to buy three mini iPads for the hospital and the rest of the money was donated to TSRHC as well. The event has raised $7,700 over the past two years!
Bootin’ Out Cerebral Palsy 5K Walk / Barrel Race
Candy Schulz and her three children, a TSRHC patient family, organized and held the second annual Bootin’ Out Cerebral Palsy 5K Walk in Alvarado, Texas on Saturday, March 29. The 5K Walk commenced from the Town Square in Alvarado.
This year, a second event was hosted by the Schulz family, a barrel racing contest on May 17. Combined, the events raised $10,000 for TSRHC! The proceeds from both events were used to help underwrite the 2014 Farm & Ranch Day event held for our patient families and friends at Reverchon Park on Saturday, May 17.
Addison’s Birthday Wish
TSRHC patient Addison, age 7 of Rockwall, made a special birthday wish to raise money for the hospital that has treated her since she was just 5 days old. Her initial goal was to reach $1,000, but after she received an overwhelming response on her first day she decided to increase her goal to $4,000! Addison and her family came to TSRHC on July 31 to donate the $4,200 that Addison raised through sharing her “Birthday Wish” sign in her neighborhood.
