This year the Rae Ann Nursing facilities really promoted health and wellness during National Nursing Home Week.
Over 100 employees from Rae Ann and The Belvedere assisted living participated in the first annual Rae Ann Walk on May 15, 2013.
The staff had a 2 mile path from the Belvedere of Westlake and Rae Ann Suburban down Detroit Road to Rae Ann Westlake and back again. Over $1500 was generously given from staff, residents, families, and vendors to benefit the Boston Marathon “One Fund.” Their vendors who contributed include: Signarama, Physician’s Ambulance, Blue Ribbon Meats, Hercules & Hercules and McKesson.
Everyone involved agreed that this was so much fun and such a great success, that Rae Ann plans to do this as an annual fundraising event.
“This was a a great day for everyone. Whenever you can bring your team together, support a great cause, and have a lot of fun, then everybody wins,” stated Marketing Director Carleen Broberg.
