Donate your birthday or special occasion to fundraise for HAS.
Pittsburgh’s Coro Fellow raises over $10,000 in honor of his birthday.
Kenny Chen brings a high level of energy and dedication to every project that he involves himself in, so it’s no surprise he thrived during his time in Pittsburgh’s Coro Fellowship program. With almost a quarter-century of amazing experiences behind him, he knew he had much to be grateful for, but much more to strive for, too. After a visit to Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti, Kenny came back wanting nothing more than to support HAS however he could, letting other people know about their work, and by raising as much money for them as possible. His birthday seemed like a perfect occasion to do both!
Brooklyn Bowlers rally to raise funds.
Alan Leber rallied family and friends to raise an impressive $4,022 through a bowling event held at The Gutter Bowling Alley and Bar in Brooklyn, New York. The bowling tournament drew about 150 attendees and 64 participants, and ended with a close match for the first-place trophy. “Anytime sports and a good cause are combined, I’m there,” said Anna Waring, one of the event organizers and a participant of the “Palatial Regalia” team, which also included Alan. 100% of the proceeds were donated to HAS to support the hospital’s most urgent needs.
Rotary Club of Chardon raises funds for HAS incubators.
“Can you imagine being told that the hospital was short of an incubator for your child?” Chardon Rotarian Ronald Croucher asked the audience. He then shared that he was born prematurely and that an incubator saved his life as a newborn. “The real measure of a person is what they have done with what they have for those they will never see,” he told the audience. Inspired by his passionate presentation, Chardon Rotary members and guests joined forces to raise $31,200 to enable HAS to purchase two incubators for use in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. The much-needed incubators will allow HAS to save the lives of many pre-term infants each year.
Sandy Kreis ran Maine Marathon in memory of her father, Dr. David Kreis, to benefit HAS
Dr. Kreis was the founding Chief of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care at Stony Brook University in New York. In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, he volunteered at HAS as part of the Yale University surgical residency program, providing medical services to patients at HAS. Dr. Kreis died on October 8, 1989. Twenty-five years after his passing, Sandy chose to run her first marathon to honor his dedication and passion for providing medical care in one of the poorest and most challenged regions in the world. “I wanted to give to something that he stood for; he stood for helping people. So, I figured if I could raise money, it should go towards immediately impacting people and that’s what led me to HAS,” said Sandy. As a result of the marathon, Sandy raised $4,194 to help HAS build a community well, which will provide approximately 500 people with clean drinking water.
