High Point Regional begins first United Way Campaign of the year
High Point Regional Health System kicked off the United Way campaign season yesterday with a “Survivor”- themed challenge and an announcement of a goal to raise $150,000.
United Way Committee members wore shirts proclaiming “Thriving – More than Surviving,” and CEO Jeff Miller, also the chair of the city-wide campaign, received a special immunity wreath from Meredith Eanes, VP and chair of the health system’s campaign.
As almost 500 employees cheered the activities, each of the Vice Presidents led a tribe of employees in survivorship competitions, with four winning tribes scheduled to compete again at the campaign celebration early in July. Greg Kerr, Sports Director of NEWS2, the “Survivor” station in the Triad, served as MC of the event.
If the employees of High Point Regional surpass the campaign goal, Miller has promised to spend some time conducting business from a “hut” on the hospital campus.
Last year’s High Point Regional campaign, which raised over $160,000 with a NASCAR theme, won both local and state recognition from United Way.
