Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children Launches our #RunNemours Program
Nemours has recently launched their #RunNemours program – that means that Nemours has recently become a charity partner with several races across the Delaware Valley as well as runDisney! Opportunities include the chance to sign up for these races as part of the #RunNemours team to raise awareness and funds for different Nemours programs and services. For some races, participants will receive guaranteed race entry and other incentives for achieving a fundraising goal. Volunteer opportunities are also available for select races.
This achievement happened, in part, because of the relationships offered through the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce. The networking group was instrumental in connecting business partners that will helped them achieve the level of community engagement they are seeking for this program.
Their first race was the Princess Half Marathon in February where 25 participants ran and raised nearly $31,000 for our Nemours Child Life program. The team was comprised or patient families, Nemours associates, local corporate executives, and community friends of the hospital. The comradery was nothing short of amazing! (see the photo below)
Their next event is the Delaware Marathon Running Festival on April 28-29 to support the tiny hearts in the Nemours Cardiac Center. The experience of bringing together our community to help our kids grow up healthy has been extraordinary!
