Toy Run plans largest ever donation of toys for Harrison's littlest patients

Toy Run 2011 Landing PageSilverdale, WA-Children who arrive at Harrison Medical Center in need of care each receive a special toy to help comfort them and calm their fears. These toys have been collected annually for the past 17 years through the generous efforts of a local motorcycle group.

“When children come into Harrison, through our emergency department or our Pediatrics Unit, an age-appropriate toy is waiting for them on their bed,” says Cynthia May RN - Executive Director/Chief Nurse. “We’re grateful for these gifts; they comfort our littlest patients and often bring a smile.”

ABATE of Washington North Kitsap Chapter has raised funds and collected toys throughout the county. “To date, we estimate a record $10,000 in toys for the hospital through this year’s Toy Run,” says Chris Varner, Jr., coordinator for this year’s Toy Run.
