On Saturday, April 28th several RCC employees and family members participated in the Fight to the Finish – Extreme 5k to benefit Children’s Hospital of Illinois. This race is comprised of extreme obstacles and challenging terrain. As runners pull themselves up brick walls, crawl through the mud and brave very cold water, they are reminded of the challenges the patients fight to overcome every day. This year the funds raised will be used to support Almost Home Kids. This program provides transitional care for children with complicated health needs, such as children who are dependent on a ventilator to breathe or a feeding tube for nourishment, who are ready to be discharged from the hospital but for whom preparations at home need to be made, as well as training for their families, and respite care.
Congratulations and great job everyone!
