In 2016, LMC volunteers spent more than 60,620 hours delivering flowers and cards, staffing information desks, facilitating pet therapy and assisting patients in departments throughout the hospital network.

And the volunteers gave more than their time. Through the Volunteer Auxiliary, they purchased needed equipment for the hospital, including 3-D mammography technology through the hospital’s Foundation, and awarded more than $75,000 in nursing scholarships to high school graduates and those pursuing continuing education in a nursing career. Lexington Medical Center volunteers also raised money for the Emergency Care Fund, which helps employees in need.

Congratulations to Bobbie Sloan, Community Volunteer of the Year!

And, congratulations to Jo Jenkins, Volunteer of the Year!

We’re so pleased that WIS-TV partners with us for this wonderful event. Sports anchor Rick Henry was broadcasting live from the Finish line.

 

Our first runner came across in just over 30 minutes! That’s a six-minute-mile pace. Here’s her interview with Rick Henry.

 

Save the date for next year’s race! April 21, 2018. We’ll see you at the start line!
