CHC Sponsors the Dallas White Rock Marathon


 

 

Community Hospital Corporation is pleased to sponsor the Dallas White Rock Marathon on December 4th which benefits Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC), a client of CHC.

 

CHC will be participating in the race with a team that has entered the corporate relay. This relay consists of five members of the CHC staff who will participate in the full marathon relay (26.2 miles total). The winning relay teams compete in a variety of categories and will share $30,000 in prize money, which will be given to TSRHC in the names of their respective corporations during a reception at the SMU Cox School of Business in early 2012. CHC will also provide volunteer support on the day of the race.

  

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children  

Since 1997, the Dallas White Rock Marathon has selected TSRHC as the event’s main beneficiary and has generously donated more than $1.8 million to date.

  

The hospital is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia. This year, the MetroPCS Dallas White Rock Marathon has pledged a $1 million donation to TSRHC, made possible by participant fundraising efforts.
