LGH chose to partner with Transplant Village out of Northwestern Memorial Hospital as our corporate charity for the last several years. LGH has a deep connection with Transplant Village and NMH because of Pat Fiscelli. We at LGH would not be here without Pat and if not for Transplant Village and NMH, Pat wouldn’t be here with us. Pat helped start LGH USA in 1990 and his son, Tony Fiscelli, is currently the LGH USA President.
We raise funds and awareness for transplants by normally holding a family friendly company event with activities and raffles. This year Covid-19 made LGH rethink the way we would raise funds for this cause. We have decided on a virtual 5k. With the pandemic putting most states in lockdown and social distancing being a must for the safety of all, we couldn’t think of a better way to get everyone involved and moving. This virtual 5K allows a week of time for everyone to complete the 5K at their pace, on their schedule and where it is most convenient for them.
There is a $25 registration fee for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. To learn more about this event please visit our event page. https://rentlgh.com/2020-transplant-village-virtual-5k-fundraiser/
