The healing power of kindness is present in every gift.
It is our privilege to pass it on.
Hello,

We have some great news to share with you in this edition. First, we are excited to announce that our annual Bronson Children's Hospital 5K Run & Walk is going virtual! We hope that you will build a team with your family and friends to make an impact in the lives of our youngest patients. Take a look below for more details.

In addition, read how a Battle Creek physician and his wife are challenging the community to double the impact of their gift. You will also read about our annual Impact Report and learn about a generous grant from United Way. Enjoy!

Bronson Children's Hospital Run & Walk To Go Virtual
The Bronson Children’s Hospital Run & Walk will still take place this year, only instead of an on-site event, it will take place right in your own neighborhoods and communities!

We invite you to register for our virtual Run & Walk to support programs and services at Bronson Children’s Hospital. As a participant, you will plan your own course and complete the run or walk anytime from Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 27. We encourage you to create a fundraising team with coworkers, family and friends.

Every registered participant will receive a t-shirt, bib and for the first time, a participation medal! Sign up today to support the only children's hospital in southwest Michigan!

W ilmanski Family & Friends $30,000 Match Challenge
A small group of Bronson Battle Creek physicians and community leaders have generously pledged to match up to $30,000 in donations to COVID-19 response efforts at Bronson Battle Creek Hospital.

The matching gift was originated by Dr. Charles Wilmanski and his wife, Nuala. It grew to $30,000 when several healthcare colleagues and a community member offered to join their effort. The Wilmanskis know first-hand the helping nature of their community and were inspired to support their local healthcare system during the pandemic.
