Each year, more than 1,000 newborns are admitted into the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. Without proper equipment, our tiniest of patients can’t get the treatment they need. The Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund at Huntsville Hospital Foundation raises funds to provide the RNICU with technology, equipment and support to help save the lives of these babies each year.
The 2014 Miracle Bash and Swim for Melissa, the signature fundraising events for the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund, were a raging success with 400 Bash guests, and more than 195 swimmers. Since its creation in 2005, the fund has raised nearly $2 million for the RNICU. Event proceeds from this year’s event will be used to provide a finger print scanning security system, and a Giraffe Omnibed, as well as enhancements for the family support program and family waiting room.
Save the date for next year’s Miracle Bash and Swim for Melissa, which will be held August 7 & 8, 2015.
