BackFit Health + Spine is excited to announce its second annual For the Kids signature fundraiser benefitting Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Last year’s month-long event raised more than $40,000. For the Kids is a giveaway fundraiser, with BackFit collecting donations online and in person in exchange for service giveaways.
“Phoenix Children’s holds a very special place in my heart,” said Vice President and co-founder of BackFit, Dr. Yasmin Rahimi. “They were there when my daughter was born and needed them. Thankfully, her operation was small and she is a thriving 11-year-old. They are saving kids every day all over the world. Being in the healthcare field, we can do our part to fundraise and make a difference.”
This year’s funds will go directly towards a much-needed C-arm for Phoenix Children’s Mercy Gilbert East Valley Campus. The medical tool is an imaging device that is based on X-ray technology. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-ray source and X-ray detector to one another.
All nine Valley BackFit locations will be participating in For the Kids, which kicks off Aug. 2 through Sept. 17. Current, new and non-patients can come into any clinic to buy a cutout, in the shape of a hand, for a donation of $5. Hands will be displayed all around the clinics. For each $5 donated, people will get to pick from several instant win prizes such as a 60-minute massage, free adjustment, free B-12 injection, free exam and more. Those who donate will also get one raffle ticket per $5 donation that is entered for the grand prize of a weekend trip for two to Sedona and a Jeep tour.
“We are so grateful for the partnership with Backfit Health + Spine,” said Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer of Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “The C-Arm can be a life-saving device and is crucial to help those who need it most, our patients. With their generous contribution, the impact will be felt for years to come.”
