The KRMC PR department has donated everything you need for the picnic (except the food and ants) and wrapped it up into a drawing. Tickets are $5 each and will be on sale every Friday in the cafeteria from 11 to 1 from June 11th through July 16th. The winning ticket will be pulled at the KRMC Maternity Fair on Saturday, July 17th. Included in the prizes: a Jamis bicycle; a beautiful handmade quilt; a tackle box; a boom box; and two water bottles.
All proceeds go to help support the KRMC team of â€œLive Now â€” Africaâ€ as they start to plan their 2010 trip to identify possible sites for future medical support. The team, comprised of Dr. Jeffery Lunn, Leslie Martin, RN, Karol Collison, RN, Gary Mineer, and Gretchen Dorner, will be leaving on the initial site visit trip in early August.
The mission of Live Now is to enhance the health of our global community through clinical care, education and research.Â Live Now is a global not-for-profit 501(c)(3) medical organization which provides quality healthcare to disadvantaged peoples around the world. Embedded into the concept of Live Now is the realization that the learning that takes place through these experiences is bidirectional. The volunteers not only provide knowledge and teaching, but also return home with their eyes opened to a new appreciation of life â€¦ better people for having served.
Live Now was founded in the spring of 2010 by Leslie Martin, RN, Jeffrey Lunn, MD, and Karol Collison, RN. Through the common interests and shared energy of these core individuals and many more volunteers, Live Now is able to touch and improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities around the world.
