Race supports new childhood obesity programs at Children's Hospital
News

This year's Reindeer Run raised money that will get the new programs started.

Development officer, Kathy Tolbert, says the Reindeer Run featured a new 3K junior run to encourage kids to get active.

Tolbert says more than 1,300 people participated this year, setting a new record.

She says the support is critical because the hospital is a non-profit that relies on donations.

"It really helps us to purchase more state of the art medical equipment, things that wouldn't be able to do if we didn't have great events that raise funds like Reindeer Run," said Tolbert.

Diane Greene said, "It's a fun one. It gets you in the Christmas spirit. You see lots of little children and people dressed up for Christmas, and it's for a great cause."

Over the years, the Reindeer Run funded projects like the expansion of the pediatric, and neonatal intensive care units at the Children's Hospital.
