On a freezing cold, rainy St. Paddy’s Day, Healing Center client and group volunteers braved the elements to support the Detlef Schrempf Foundation’s F5 St. Pat’s Dash. It all began with volunteers “manning” our registration table at Run 26 in Mill Creek, the week before the event. Over 80 volunteer hours were donated to make sure runners had their bibs and timers.
The big Dash day arrived and volunteers were helping in the parking garage at 4:45 am; serving coffee at 5:45, and then frozen custard at 10am! Once the 13,000 runners completed the dash in the rain and hail; THC volunteers poured beers in the beer garden as the snow flakes created whiteout conditions. It was one of the coldest events The Healing Center has ever participated in.
Because of our outstanding volunteers, the Detlef Schrempf Foundation will grant monies to help support the costs of our children’s programs. If you missed the Dash, but would like to volunteer for the Detlef Schrempf Foundation Celebrity Gala & Auction on June 23, (to benefit THC and Rise n’Shine), please email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lisa at The Healing Center (206) 523-1206, ext. 15.
The Healing Center could not be available to the next grieving family if it weren’t for these outstanding volunteers: Rita, Linda, Mike, Julia, Donna, Mary Jean, Mary, Aubrey, Scott, Christi, Dustin, Thomas, Alexander, Jennifer, Nicole, Nick, Jaclyn, Walter, Jennifer and Peyton. Thank you all very, very much!
