Children's Therapy Unit to benefit from Northwest Corks & Crush
The young patients might not realize it while they're throwing a ball or pedaling a tricycle, but their treatment-disguised-as-play is truly the result of a team effort.
Now you can support their team just by attending Northwest Corks & Crush, presented by Skanska. The gala wine tasting, dinner and auction May 18 will benefit Children's Therapy Unit this year. (Reserve your seat at www.nwcorksandcrush.com.)
Inside the wooden Ark-shaped building, therapists, psychologists, physicians, technicians and other pediatric specialists work together to help each child become as functional and independent as possible. That collaborative approach has helped more than 50,000 children since Children's Therapy Unit opened in 1966 at Good Samaritan Hospital.
"It's a gem of a resource to have located here in Puyallup," said Glenn Kasman, President of MultiCare’s East Pierce Region that includes MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital. "Kids and families come from throughout the Northwest to access services there.”
In the past seven years, Northwest Corks & Crush has raised more than $2 million for programs at Good Samaritan Hospital.
“We really appreciate the community’s support,” Kasman said. “Northwest Corks & Crush is an opportunity for members of the community to connect with our team at Good Samaritan, and provide support for the programs at the Children’s Therapy Unit, which is a national-class facility."
