Last year, over $40,000 was raised by ordinary citizens throughout our community to benefit the healthcare initiatives of The Memorial Foundation. The efforts of these independent fundraisers was instrumental in ensuring the future of the programs and services that have changed so many lives here, at home, throughout the Yakima Valley – programs and services that could not be sustained in a community of equal size.
We do not make state-of-the-art healthcare happen in Yakima… you do!
You can make a difference . . . and you do not have to have a lot of money to do so . . .
You can be:
- A student
- An employee
- A patient who has been helped by a particular service at Memorial
- A family member whose loved one has been helped by a particular service at Memorial
- An everyday, average citizen . . . like anybody!
- Through his “Cancer Ride America” event, Dean Shirey, whose brother was helped by the programs and services at North Star Lodge, raised over $13,000 for our initiative to advance cancer care.
- Through their “Run for Your Life” event, the students of Pacific Northwest University raised over $10,000 for our initiative to improve children’s health.
- Through his “Cape Horn for Kids” event, Bill Dolsen, dedicated community service advocate and volunteer, raised over $16,000 for our initiative to improve children’s health.
- Through their “Towing for a Cure” event, the employees of Elite Towing and Recovery raised over $2,000 for breast cancer services, which is a part of our initiative to advance cancer care.
All of these individuals made a tremendous difference for healthcare in our community.
