CHRISTUS Health associates put on their favorite superhero shirts to offer courage, strength and hope for children. The shirts, and in some cases capes, were all part of a special fundraiser for CHRISTUS pediatric facilities and departments. Promoted as an extra day to wear jeans on Thursday, October 25, CHRISTUS Associates at the system offices in Irving donated $5, and some donated more, to help support the real superheroes out in our CHRISTUS ministries.
The money raised went to purchase Halloween costumes for patients at Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances in Tyler and CHRISTUS Southeast Texas St. Elizabeth in Beaumont. If their need for costumes has already been met, the money raised will go to purchase fun activities like books and crayons for kids.
Every day is a battle for these young, brave patients as well as their parents and caregivers who find the strength to fight and care for their children. Money raised amounted to almost $2,000. Way to go to the super heroes at the CHRISTUS Health system office!
