    A group of therapists at Timberlake Care Center in Kansas City, MO who are originally from the Philippines organized a fun run on November 17 to raise money for victims of typhoon Haiyan.

    It began as a small Facebook event but grew into an event attended by dozens. The run at Loose Park was covered by two TV crews. Fox 4 News interviewed OTR Mary Elizon, who said, “A lot of us from the Philippines do feel their pain, we’re miles and miles away but we want them to know that we do hear them.”

    The group of therapists raised $1,895 by the end of the event, and our parent company Kindred Healthcare will make a matching contribution.
