Five Bayshore Medical Center staff members travelled to Nashville, Tennessee to run a marathon benefiting the HCA Hope Fund.

The HCA Hope Fund is an employee-run, employee-supported 501(c)3 charity. The Hope Fund helps HCA employees and their immediate families who are affected by financial hardship. The fund provides support for those employees who have experienced a disaster, extended illness/injury, domestic violence, death of a loved one, and other special situations.

"We asked all our friends and family to donate whatever they could for the cause. We had a lot of staff who supported us," said Simonette Burgos, Controller at Bayshore Medical Center. "With the help of Bayshore Medical Center's staff we were able to travel to Nashville and participate in the marathon" said Burgos.

The Bayshore Medical Center Team was the fourth top fundraising team nationally and the top fundraiser in the Gulf Coast Division raising over $5,000 for the Hope Fund. The team was also given a special recognition for this accomplishment by John Steele, the Senior Vice President of Corporate Human Resources at HCA.
