As the title sponsor of this year’s EECU Mayfest Run, we are working with our partner companies to raise funds to support Cook Children’s Medical Center in their efforts to advance patient care and provide hope to thousands of children and their families.
Through a Patient Partner Program, we have paired five Mayfest runners with five Cook Children’s patients to allow the participating children to “cross the finish line” with assistance. Thanks to the runners’ support and encouragement, what could be a difficult task of participating in this race for the patients, can instead become a moment they’ll never forget.
“A willing and able runner giving a supportive hand to a child in need is more than symbolic,” said Lonnie Nicholson, EECU President and CEO. “It is an express commitment that we can all help our communities and in particular those in our communities who are most vulnerable. We are pleased we can support the Mayfest charities as well as well as this year’s patient-runner teams to benefit Cook Children’s.”
Fundraising efforts will help patients like 6 year old Matty, 11 year old Alex, and thousands of other Cook Children’s patients. Read Matty and Alex’s stories and donate today at eecu.org/donate.
