Podiatry Management News (PM News)recently reported on the annual efforts by students at Barry University to raise funds for YUcatan Crippled Children’s Fund established by Dr. Charles Southerland, DPM.
The second annual Heal the Stride 5K Run/Walk and Variety Show brought in over $4,000 last month. There were additional donations made to this project through Barry University. PM News reports acknowledged Alexis Kreplick, Elizabeth Sanders and Augusta Dunce for their organizational efforts in the event on May 19, 2012. More than 80 people participated, striding around the Barry campus, escorted by the Village of Miami police force. The student variety show that ended the event included a martial arts demonstration, cultural dance performances, plus musical instruments in solos and duets
These students will carry their experience in giving on into their practice life — many podiatrists support healing missions in their home neighborhoods and foreign lands.
