Children’s of Alabama recently presented Rotary International District 6860 with a recognition plaque on the Pillars of the Community display in the hospital.
The plaque honors the group for donating more than $1 million to the hospital over a 10-year period.
Since 2009, the 52 chapters of Rotary International District 6860 have hosted Boiling ‘N Bragging, a preseason college football tailgate party that benefits the Critical Care Transport program at Children’s.
The care team transports nearly 1,000 critically ill and injured children each year by helicopter, jet and ambulance. The team members include highly trained registered nurses and respiratory therapists with the experience to provide age-appropriate care.
“When time matters most, our team works quickly to transport ill and injured children,” said Jason Peterson, RN, who is transport coordinator for Children’s. “We are so thankful for the generous support we have received from the members of Rotary International District 6860.”
This year’s Boiling ‘N Bragging will be Saturday, Aug. 22 at Otey’s Tavern in Mountain Brook.
