What do you get when you combine IWC’s commitment to community engagement, a renowned local children’s hospital, and our CEO’s love for Halloween? Our first annual Trunk or Treat event to support Riley Children’s Hospital!
At IWC, we love training excellent wellness professionals who will go make a difference in their communities and improve people’s lives. And we also love partnering with other like-minded institutions and organizations to support the wellbeing of our community. Riley Children’s Hospital is one of these stand-out institutions, and we are motivated by their perennial need for resources to help support the children and families facing very challenging medical circumstances. Our goal is to raise $5,000 – the amount that will add a red wagon to their fleet for transporting children around the campus, with an “Indiana Wellness College” license plate on it!
This family-friendly event will take place on Saturday, October 30th from 11am-1pm in the parking lot outside our school. It is the brainchild of our CEO, Mrs. Dainah Craft, who has a passion for wellness, families, and, of course, Halloween! (no one can rock a wig better than she does!)
Never heard of a “trunk or treat” like ours? Think trick or treating with a wellness twist and fundraising emphasis! Event sponsors will have their vehicle trunks filled with healthy treats or fun trinkets for kids to collect. Our massage therapy and esthetics students will also be participating by offering free chair massages, facial skin analysis, and hand/arm massages for any attendee. And lawn games will be fun for the whole family!
The success of this event depends on the generosity of sponsors and donors. We have 3 sponsor levels, plus a $25 minimum donation for any vehicle that wants to participate. Donations of any amount are welcomed!
Riley Children’s Health is Indiana’s largest and most skilled pediatric system and the only pediatric research hospital in the state. It is ranked among the top hospitals in the nation. They serve pediatric patients of all kinds, many in some of the most serious medical situations. One infant patient, Rowan Breyts, had a 1% chance of survival when he arrived at Riley. Today he is flourishing, thanks to the expertise and care of Riley. Watch a video of his inspiring story here.
