The 2017 ABRR PA run featured 32 teams,
driving 550 miles,
and raised $28,470.75 for charity!
On behalf of the teams and sponsors,
we would like to thank the donors who gave so generously
in support of the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Program
at Children's Specialized Hospital!
In 2017 there were ABRR runs organized in 3 other parts of the country - click the buttons below to learn about these runs:
The 2017 Pennsylvania ABRR will benefit the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Program at Children's Specialized Hospital.
"Our Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Program is specifically designed to help wean children from narcotics once they have been exposed to them prenatally in utero and go through a painful withdrawal process after birth. Infants are carefully monitored by highly skilled clinicians for signs consistent with withdrawal. Each child is cared for based on their individual needs. During their inpatient stay, our team provides innovative programming and expert care to achieve the desired outcomes. Babies are often our most fragile patients but often they are also our strongest. We are proud to be the national leader in neonatal abstinence."
In addition to the NeoNatal program a portion of the money will go towards helping children with traumatic brain injuries during their rehabilitation with much needed equipment.
Instructions for collecting the donation checks and cash can be found on the fundraising page.
