St. John's Annual Ocean Walk
On Tuesday, August 25, St. John's will be holding its Fourth Annual Ocean Walk to benefit the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department. The walk begins at 5:00 p.m.
The walk will start at the Hospital flagpole and will proceed to Beach 9 Street and back.
The purpose of the walk is to provide funding for a state-of-the-art Obstetrics/ Gynecology renovation. St. John's Obstetrics and Gynecology service is the only obstetrics service on the Rockaway peninsula and offers prenatal care and testing along with comprehensive fetal monitoring and testing.
In addition, St. John's Nursery has 25 bassinets certified by the New York State Department of Health. In the last decade, the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department has delivered more than 10,000 babies.
The walk will include giveaways and dinner provided by Aramark at the end of the walk.
Walkers are asked to raise at least $100 in pledges.
The goal for the 2009 Ocean Walk is $50,000. For registration and sponsorship information, contact the Development Office at 718-869-8383.
