Cribs for Kids
The annual Chichester Business Association Run/Walk was held on June 22. Proceeds from this race/walk benefited the SIDS of PA and the "Cribs for Kids" programs, which provide underserved families with education, awareness and cribs to help curtail infant deaths and injury resulting from an infant's sleeping environment.
Crozer-Keystone partners with the national Cribs for Kids program to serve those in need in Delaware County. The money raised is donated in memory of David Angelo Cruz, the son of a Collingdale couple who passed away from SIDS in 2008.
Heel the Burn
Jackie Roberts made a decision to give back. During the summer of 2008, Roberts spent almost five days in the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Center as a burn patient. Grateful for the excellent care she received and as a celebration to burn survivors, Roberts decided to create the Heel the Burn 5K Run/1M Walk. The 3rd annual event was held on Saturday, June 9, in Williamstown, N.J. More than 150 people participated to help raise $5,240 for the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center.
