Hasbro Children’s Hospital is a founding member of The St. Damien Collaborative, a partnership of 11 children’s hospitals supporting St. Damien Pediatric Hospital in Tabarre, Haiti. The St. Damien Collaborative is committed to supporting the life-saving work at St. Damien Hospital through fundraising as well as volunteering time. Every January, for the last 6 years, residents and faculty from Hasbro rotate at St. Damien, and this year we are hosting two residents from Haiti, Drs. Islande Saintilus and Steeven Joseph, both of whom will be joining us for the fundraiser. Many of our faculty, led by Drs. Michael Koster, Lisa Denny and Beatrice Lechner are actively involved with St. Damien and we ask that you too open your hearts and pocketbooks for this special event. So get your swimsuits on and get ready to paddle, novice and experts welcome. If you’re not able to make it for any reason please consider making a donation with the form below. Your contribution will be doubled by a generous donor who has challenged the St. Damien Collaborative to a 100k match for 2017. Last year The St. Damien Collaborative was able to meet a 50k matched challenge raising 100k for St. Damien, so join us in making this event the most successful ever!
