Mud Run Benefits Joel A. Halpern Regional Trauma Center and Burn Center

Posted By: Advancing Care

Hundreds of participants got muddy during The Evan Lieberman Westchester Medical Center Trauma Mud Run on June 25.  Runners of all ages ran a 5k through the woods and conquered tire swings, cargo nets, a fire tower, a giant mud pit and more, all on Westchester Medical Center’s Valhalla campus.

The annual fundraiser benefits the Joel A. Halpern Regional Trauma Center and Burn Center.  The Level I Trauma Center and Burn Care services offered by Westchester Medical Center are the only programs of their kind in the region and serve as a lifeline for the Hudson Valley’s most seriously burned and injured residents.
