St. Jude fund-raiser

Friday, November 23, 2012
Darlene Redden, right, owner/trainer of "Female Fitness" in downtown McCook, Nebraska, and, from left, Rosalie Redden, Charles Skilling and Linda Thomas hold the certificates they received as fund-raisers for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Fellow fund-raisers Maggie Repass and Rachelle Solko (not shown) and other Female Fitness clients/contributors raised $664 in the one-day fund-raising event on Sept. 12. Darlene said that Female Fitness' contribution is enough to fund one platelet infusion and a family meal pass for one day at the hospital that is dedicated to advancing cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of hospital founder Danny Thomas, no child is ever denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
