Members of Lane Regional Medical Center’s HERO Club — Hospital Employees Reaching Out — presented a check for $2,500 to the American Heart Association on Feb. 26.
Julianne Caperton, 8, of Zachary, accepted the donation from the HERO Club on behalf of the American Heart Association.
Julianne, the daughter of Jonathan and Jessica Caperton, suffers from hypoplastic left heart syndrome and has had multiple heart surgeries as a result. She and her family are involved with the AHA’s annual Heart Walk, a news release said.
More than 250 employees contribute to the HERO Club to raise funds for local organizations, including the AHA, American Cancer Society/Relay for Life, March of Dimes and Susan G. Komen.
Additionally, the club is the employee giving and fundraising arm of the LaneRMC Foundation, which supports projects at Lane, such as providing cancer treatments at the Radiation Oncology Center and helping employees in times of need because of catastrophic life events through the Employee Benevolence Fund.
