Prior to our acquisition by ResMed, CareTouch created a culture of compassionate communicators partnering to improve people’s health. With this in mind, our own employee-led outreach program, CareTouch in the Community™, was born.
Our mission is to support the health of people where we live and work, and it is the heartfelt passions of our own employees that brought this program to life. Throughout the year, our team chooses a few causes that are important to us and to the health of people in our community. We donate our time, talent and treasure to these causes with the hope of making a small difference.
Even though we now have a new name, our mission remains strong, and we look forward to bringing helping hands and hearts into our Colorado communities in the future.
On June 7, 2015, we participated in The Leaves of Hope Run/Walk and Cancer Survivors Celebration. So many of us have been touched by cancer, and we felt that this was a great way to show our support for people who have survived cancer, and those who are currently battling it. Read more here about race day and the great time we had supporting the Exempla Lutheran Medical Center Foundation! Check out the YouTube Video of our great day!
In September 2014, we embarked on our first CareTouch in the Community event, by participating in the 9th annual Hike for Hospice event in Morrison, Colorado.
This event supported Porter Hospice and St. Anthony Hospice in Denver. Through our sponsorship, fundraising efforts (thank you!) and butterfly release at the Hike for Hospice, we raised over $4,000 for the Butterfly Program, which provides pediatric palliative care. Thank you to everyone who supported us!
