The MRJ Way: To celebrate the unflagging commitment of the entire Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital community and to recognize the unrivaled spirit that started it all, I am thrilled to announce our exciting new 80th anniversary campaign: The MRJ Way!
Mary Ranken Jordan (or MRJ) was known to say, "Consider the children first in all that you do." Her mission was a simple one, and we strive each day to live out her words. With The MRJ Way, we're reconnecting with the passions and purpose of our philanthropic founder.
Starting now, and throughout our entire anniversary year, we will celebrate the kids and families whom you have helped to get home by rededicating ourselves to MRJ's vision. It promises to be a celebration like none other, and let's face it - who couldn't use a cause for good cheer?
The fact is, Ranken Jordan patients and families face more adversity on a normal day than most of us do on our worst ones. They need your help. I see it every day in kids and their families. I hear it in their stories. And I feel it throughout our community. MRJ's mission is far from complete, and it'll take all of us to continue serving kids in need.
If you have the means to help support our mission in any way, please do; even the smallest gifts can make a real positive impact. We're asking the community to give The MRJ Way and reach a fundraising goal of $800,000 by April 9, 2022. Our kids have exceptional circumstances and require equally exceptional care.
The MRJ Way is alive and healthier than ever, and we intend to prove that in the year ahead.
Thank you so very much for all you do, thank you in advance for staying with us on this journey for the kids' sakes, and, please, continue to be safe!
