Union College physician assistant students are raising money to help support Clinic with a Heart at their annual Dash for Compassion. The Lincoln-based nonprofit serves people who are uninsured and underinsured through a ministry of healthcare.
The five-kilometer run/walk will be virtual, so you can choose your own route. You just need to submit your race time by the end of the day on Sunday, April 18.
Submit results here. (Sign up below).
The Dash for Compassion was created in 2013 by Anne Mullin, now a Union College graduate. The idea came to her while attending an annual physician assistant conference in Washington, D.C. “We got the idea from another PA student who we met at the conference,” Mullin explained in a 2013 interview. “As PA students, our purpose is always to serve and help people with our knowledge and compassion. By forming this philanthropic partnership, we will be exhibiting the compassion and medical service that has come to define our profession.”
Dash for Compassion is just one of the ways through which Union College PA students demonstrate the responsible servanthood modeled by Christ. Students engage in their community through service all year, such as at Project Impact, supporting the Union College Foot Clinic once a month during the academic year, and providing free medical care in Peru every summer.
Everyone who registers and submits a time for this event will receive a t-shirt (S,M,L, XL) and there will be prizes for the top times. You may also make a donation without participating in the walk/run.
Support your community, show compassion and please participate in this event.
