Crusade awards grants to U of L pediatrics
Crusade grants to University of Louisville total more than $20 million
University of Louisville medical programs are celebrating because the WHAS Crusade for Children delivered a very big check.
“The WHAS Crusade for Children is so proud to present a total of ten grants for the University of Louisville. The total is $565,780,” announced Crusade CEO and President Dawn Lee.
That total will help U of L medical programs serve children who otherwise would be forced to travel to other cities to get the proper treatment.
Dr. Gerard Rabalais, University of Louisville Pediatrics Director said, “Having philanthropy step in with a half million dollars to support us is just vital. Otherwise we would have to turn children away. We‘d tell families, we’d tell pediatricians we can’t take care of your child.”
This year’s grant to help children with special needs brings the total to more than $20 million that the Crusade has granted U of L over the last forty years.
