The fourth annual Walk n’ Roll and KidsAbilities Carnival was hosted by the Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation in New Jersey according to details from NJToday.net. The hospital — the nation’s largest pediatric hospital when dealing with children’s brain injuries — has been hosting the event as a way to raise money to provide medical treatments for kids.
Children who suffer traumatic brain injuries have their lives permanently changed depending on severity. If a child suffers brain damage, for example, our San Diego brain injury lawyers know that the younger kids are, the more prone you are to learning disabilities or problems in development.
Walk n’ Roll raises money to fund treatment of children with brain injuries.
As the nation’s biggest pediatric rehab system of its kind, Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Jersey provides everything from outpatient therapy services to long-term care to kids affected by brain injuries, premature birth or life-changing illnesses.
To raise money for the hospital, over 1,400 people came out to the Walk n’ Roll and KidsAbilities Carnival on May 22, 2010 at Johnson Park in Piscataway, New Jersey. The event produced $140,000 to benefit the numerous patients with brain injuries the hospital treats every year.
The chairman of the Walk n’ Roll organization took part in the event with his daughter. One week before graduating from college, his daughter suffered brain injuries in an auto accident and was treated at Children’s Specialized Hospital.
Sponsors of Walk n’ Roll included Kohl’s department stores along with PSE&G (Public Service Enterprise Group) and New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance. The event also brought 75 volunteers who donated time and efforts.
Awards were given for various achievements.
Medical bills for brain injury treatment — as well as other permanent injures — can be astronomical. Fortunately, hospitals like this one promote good health even after a horrible tragedy.
