I committed to raise funds to help support The Joining Hands Fund: Helping Kids and Families Face Corona Virus by participating in this year’s virtual Columbus Duck Race hosted by the Development Board of Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The Joining Hands Fund: Helping Kids and Families Face Coronavirus allows each of us to join hands, pitch in, and help in whatever manner we can. Everyone has a role to play in guiding our community through this challenge. The Joining Hands Fund will harness the strengths of people helping other people. You can help buy purchasing duck race entries through my Duck Ambassador Page. Each entry is $5 and we have multiple quantity levels available.
Solo Duck – $5
When you purchase a duck to the support the Columbus Duck race you are contributing to The Joining Hands Fund helping vital services such as the following:
Nationwide Children’s Hospital is one of the largest freestanding pediatric research institutions in the country. Our doctors are actively searching for vaccines, treatment plans, and prevention strategies to combat coronavirus. Your support will help researchers such as our world-renowned infectious disease experts who focus on pathogenesis and treatment of respiratory infections and the application of genomics strategies to better deal with infectious agents.
Scientific principles to slow the transmission of the coronavirus make it challenging for children to receive care for other conditions. We have greatly increased our delivery of telehealth services, ensuring that children continue to receive world class care for conditions like mental health and others without having to leave their home. Your support will enable us to expand telehealth opportunities to more families and children.
Children are the most vulnerable in society to upheavals such as economic challenges. Housing, continuity of care, education, safety, and many more components of their lives are threatened during this difficult time. Your support will help us help families affected by the coronavirus and social upheaval.
We might not be able to give our neighbors a hug right now or pat them on the back but by purchasing a $5 duck for the Columbus Duck Race you are answering the call to pitch in, help our community and make a difference.
