Raising awareness and funds for research
Fairview has proudly partnered for years with the American Heart Association and March of Dimes. Our organizations are committed to life-saving research and education to advance care in key clinical areas—healthy hearts and healthy babies.
In spring 2013, Fairview employees, friends and relatives teamed up to participate in these important community events. Again this year, Team Fairview met and exceeded its $100,000 fundraising goal for each walk.
Stepping up to make a difference
March for Babies
Team Fairview was out in force on April 28, 2013 at the March of Dimes' March for Babies. Held for the first time in St. Paul's Como Park, our 800 walkers made up the largest team in attendance. Donations currently stand at more than $100,000 for this walk.
Our partner, the University of Minnesota, has more than $1.7 million in combined active research grants from the March of Dimes.
This research is translated into practice each day as Fairview staff provides family-centered care at our Birthplaces, comprehensive prenatal care at our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Centers and quality intensive care for critically ill newborns at our Neonatal Intensive Care Units at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital, Fairview Ridges Hospital and Fairview Southdale Hospital.
Fairview also exceeded its fundraising goal for the Heart Walk, raising nearly $115,000 so far. More than 800 Fairview walkers signed up to participate in the walk held May 4, 2013 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Our partner, the University of Minnesota, has more than $3.2 million in combined active research grants from the American Heart Association, helping enable it to research cardiovascular disease.
This research is translated into the heart care provided each day at Fairview, from prevention and treatment of heart disease to heart transplantation and the latest medical research.
