Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when its a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, theyre terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Oh, you are so funny. emoticon

Actually, the funds raised will provide services to combat human trafficking, DV, etc.

I didn't write the original press release. But it's a reminder to read such pieces aloud before deciding they're finalized. Thanks for the grammar alert!

Did you REALLY mean to write:
"Funds raised will provide human trafficking, domestic violence, and other programs and services throughout Portland that Soroptimists continue to support."

I had NO idea that the Soroptimists supported that sort of thing!!

I'm a Soroptimist. We'd love to fill the place and make loads of money for community service. Forward this info as much as you please. No, it's not exercise-related. But the more fit we are, the more we can contribute in energy!
