Hospital Hill Run Committee Makes Donations

Hospital Hill Run walkers and runners participated in the event to raise money for the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation’s Caring Club House and Watertown D.A.S.H.

The Caring Club House exists to meet the hospitality needs of out-of-town patients, families, and caregivers receiving services through Prairie Lakes Healthcare System. Funded and furnished completely through community support and donations, the Caring Club House is a not-for-profit, community-based project of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation.

Watertown D.A.S.H. is an acronym for Drug Free, Alcohol Free, Safe and Healthy. The program empowers youth to choose healthy and positive lifestyles. The Watertown Police Department partners with others in the community to lead by example and raise the bar for youth to live safe and healthy lives.

The Hospital Hill Run committee proudly presented the Caring Club House a donation of $1,000 and Watertown D.A.S.H. a donation of $500.
