BackFit Health + Spine has announced its second annual For the Kids signature fundraiser benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Last year’s month-long event raised more than $40,000, according to a press release. For the Kids is a giveaway fundraiser, with BackFit collecting donations online and in person in exchange for service giveaways.
“Phoenix Children’s holds a very special place in my heart,” said Vice President and co-founder of BackFit, Dr. Yasmin Rahimi. “They were there when my daughter was born and needed them. Thankfully, her operation was small and she is a thriving 11-year-old. They are saving kids every day all over the world. Being in the healthcare field, we can do our part to fundraise and make a difference.”
This year’s funds will go directly towards a much-needed C-arm for Phoenix Children’s Mercy Gilbert East Valley Campus. The medical tool is an imaging device that is based on X-ray technology.
The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-ray source and X-ray detector to one another.
All nine Valley BackFit locations will be participating in For the Kids, which kicked off Aug. 2, and runs through Sept. 17.
Current, new and non-patients can come into any clinic to buy a cutout, in the shape of a hand, for a donation of $5. Hands will be displayed all around the clinics. For each $5 donated, people will get to pick from several instant win prizes such as a 60-minute massage, free adjustment, free B-12 injection, free exam and more.
Those who donate will also get one raffle ticket per $5 donation that is entered for the grand prize of a weekend trip for two to Sedona and a Jeep tour.
“We are so grateful for the partnership with Backfit Health + Spine,” said Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer of Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “The C-Arm can be a life-saving device and is crucial to help those who need it most, our patients. With their generous contribution, the impact will be felt for years to come.”
Co-founded in 2002 by chiropractors and siblings Dr. Rahimi and Dr. Radman ‘Radi’ Rahiminejad, the duo established one of the most innovative multispecialty health clinics in the country, the press release stated.
Now with nine locations in Arizona, the company believes in identifying the root cause of your pain to heal disease and proactively prevent future injury and illness. For more information and a location nearest you, visit www.backfithealth.com/.
