A HUGE thank you to everyone who attended the First Annual Aidan Brown Foundation 5K Run/Walk on November 15th!! The race, which was also hc1 Communities first large-scale event, took place at the Fall Creek and 16th Street Park (Graham Martin Park) on the West side of Indianapolis. Aidan's friends and family came out in full force, raising over $9,000 for this amazing cause.
The Aidan Brown Foundation aims to help children with cancer stay positive by providing much-needed distractions and aiding in connecting them to people, places and things that they love. The foundation hopes to achieve this by raising funds to buy and give iPads to children of all ages undergoing cancer treatments in Indiana. As technology leaders in healthcare, it is the duty of the entire hc1 family to support the improvement of healthcare organizations and the enhancement of the healthcare experience - especially for those in our local community. We hope to spread the love and support of the Aidan Brown Foundation to all children who are suffering from cancer in Indiana, and are extremely proud to have been part of such an amazing event.
A very special thank you as well to all of our volunteers and sponsors of the race, as it could not have gone on without you!
