BackFit Health + Spine is excited to announce its second annual For the Kids signature fundraiser benefitting Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Last year’s 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,” says 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 toward a much-needed C-arm. 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 takes place through September 17. The Desert Ridge BackFit location can be found at 21001 N. Tatum Boulevard, Ste. 78-1640. Current, new and non-patients can come into the clinic to buy a cutout, in the shape of a hand for a donation of $5. Hands will be displayed all around the clinic. For each $5 donated, locals 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,” says 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.”
