Walk for Children’s Pittsburgh
Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation started Walk for Children’s in 2016 to bring patient families and community supporters together to support UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh’s mission of excellence in patient care, teaching, and research.
Since then, the Walk has raised over $2.2 million dollars to support the kids at UPMC Children’s Hospital. The hospital is built entirely on the support of generous community members to provide hope to children and families throughout the region, allowing access to all children, regardless of their ability to pay.
The work that community fundraising has helped include, treating rare diseases, defining new standards of care, pioneering protocols, and providing family-centered services in a world-class environment. Every discovery, every milestone, and every advancement are rooted in the same mission, and supported by the same essence of community philanthropy, from more than a century ago.
Walk for Children’s is a time for patients, caretakers, families, and individuals throughout the community to get involved and give back to Children’s. This day is also about celebrating the Patient Champions, those who have been or are currently being treated at Children’s, who show great strength and courage throughout their medical journeys.
This past June, members of Webbula HQ donated and went to the walk to support this amazing cause. If you’d like to learn more about Walk for Children’s and donate visit.
2018 Charity Events
Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh
The Humane Animal Rescue was formed from two organizations, The Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center and Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, to create the largest animal welfare association in Pittsburgh. Today, The Humane Animal Rescue provides enhanced services to domestic and wild animals and brings greater efficiency in animal care processes, staff training, and cutting-edge practices to one cohesive organization.
Team Webbula was eager to give back to the community this past March and donate to this wonderful cause. A few members of Webbula HQ team took the afternoon off to shop for food, toys, treats, cleaning supplies and more for the animals in need at the Pittsburgh Location. A dog’s life is ruff enough, so we’re always happy to make it better.
A of us on team Webbula have a love for all animals, and we are happy knowing that the animals are taken care of and finding new homes. If you’d like to donate visit Humane Animal Rescue today.
