The 17th annual Swim for Melissa has been postponed and will not take place on Saturday, July 30. The Huntsville Hospital Foundation team will be in touch with all of our registered swimmers when we have more details about next steps. Thank you to all of our swim families, sponsors and donors for their understanding and support of our Neonatal ICU. Your friendship and generosity mean the world to the George family and our entire team.
This two-part event has something for the whole family! Saturday morning, July 30, hundreds of kids ages four to 14 swim laps to raise money for the babies. The next Friday evening is a night full of fun at Stovehouse. Miracle Bash will feature a buffet dinner, one of the largest silent auctions in town and fun games.
Record net proceeds provided new Giraffe Omnibeds, an infant-driven feeding system and a simulation training doll for the Regional Neonatal ICU at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children
“A life saved is a powerful thing. The Huntsville Hospital NICU saved our Charlie before he could even comprehend what his life might become. As parents, we’re reminded of that all the time. Charlie lost his first tooth last week – without the NICU we wouldn’t have gotten a visit from the Tooth Fairy. He started kindergarten this year – without the NICU we wouldn’t have had a first day of school. And without the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund, the Huntsville Hospital NICU doctors wouldn’t have much of the equipment and resources they use to save brand new lives every day.”
