MetroHealth Sets Fundraising Record in 2013 -- Thanks to You


Last year, we set an ambitious goal: to raise more money for MetroHealth than we’d ever raised before. Our aim was to bring in $11 million. Thank you to every one of you who contributed toward that effort in 2013. You made history. You gave $11,028,835 to put doctors in Cleveland public schools, to continue research that gives people with spinal cord injuries use of their arms and legs again, to help buy Life Flight a sophisticated new intensive-care ambulance to use when air transport won’t work and to do so much more for the health of our community. Your donation was not just a gift to MetroHealth, it was a gift to Northeast Ohio. And all of us owe you our gratitude. Of course, our work isn’t finished. We have even bigger goals for 2014, which we’ll share with you as the year unfolds. But we’ll go forward knowing you provided the foundation on which we’re building, that it’s you who’s making it possible for MetroHealth to fulfill its mission of leading the way to a healthier community.

Thank you.
