Seventy-six employees, their families, friends and dogs walked, ran and sniffed their way on a 5-K (3 mile) trail from the hospital that went around the ball field and back on Sunday, December 15. Out of the 76 participants, there were 43 adults, 13 kids and 20 dogs. Phyllis Kildal (Nutritional Services), 2014 PVMC Relay for Life team captain, and Mark Baker (Cath lab) put the event together.
Phylis shanghaied her family into helping with the event and Mark was the official “Santa” of the day. He had toys for all the kids who visited him. Two thousand thirteen marks the first time this event was held but everyone was very enthusiastic and so it looks like this is going to be an annual event in the future.
We really appreciate all of you who came out and joined in the fun. The total contributions for the event came to $302 – a good amount and turn out for our first 5K event.
