Raising Money for the National Kidney Foundation04.19.2016
A team of Harmony Healthcare IT (HHIT) employees and their family members will join forces with 100,000 walkers nationwide by participating in the National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Walk. The event will take place at Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN on April 23rd. Similar walks are held in 100 communities nationwide to raise awareness and fund lifesaving programs to educate and support patients, their families and those at risk for kidney disease.
The group of healthcare data experts will wear team shirts and walk in honor of Mary Liddell, the wife of HHIT CEO, Tom Liddell. Mary is approaching her three-year anniversary of receiving a kidney transplant at Indiana University Health, which, coincidentally, is an HHIT client for the health data archiving services it provides.
“I speak for myself and the other 26 million Americans affected by kidney disease when I say how very much I appreciate the support from our HHIT team as well as other local Mishawaka and South Bend residents,” says Mary Liddell. “I look forward to gathering and walking on April 23rd to support the National Kidney Foundations efforts to educate the public and continue to raise funds for research.”
The HHIT team surpassed its initial fundraising goal and has collected $3,725 to date.
