Walmart employee Joanne Doherty has been raising hope for Children’s since 2003 as a Children’s Health Foundation Circle of Caring Hearts monthly donor. Joanne, who is passionate about children, is grateful to the trauma team at Children’s who saved her young niece from respiratory distress. When a colleague’s young daughter later died in a tragic accident, she decided to join the Circle of Caring Hearts to honour both girls.
“We hope we never need Children’s Hospital again,” says Joanne, “but if we do we are so happy and relieved to know that it’s there, close to home. Children’s is Our Hospital!”
Joanne also works tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Hospital, as the charity coordinator at Walmart in Goderich. Along with community events like the Walmart Walk for Miracles, she has organized a golf tournament that has raised $20,000 over the past 10 years.
Thank you Joanne for all you do for Children’s!
