Excitement is in the air here at Magee Rehab. Why? Well, it’s not just because we’re excited for a much drier weekend. It’s because this Friday is our annual Night of Champions fundraiser! The Night of Champions is an annual fundraiser that raises money for Magee’s patient and community programs, such as art therapy, wheelchair sports, horticultural therapy, our Facility Dog Program and much more. It’s an evening full of rubbing elbows with local sports celebrities, live entertainment, dinner, auctions, raffles, wheelchair sports demos and a whole lot of fun.
But the real reason it is called the Night of Champions is because we also honor champions in our community. These are people who have done great things for Magee and the people of the Philadelphia area. This year’s honorees are BAYADA Home Health Care and Fred Duling. Today, we’re going to introduce you to the great folks at BAYADA.
Who is BAYADA?
BAYADA Home Health Care has a special purpose: to help people have a safe home life with comfort, independence and dignity. BAYADA Home Health Care provides nursing, rehabilitative, therapeutic, hospice and assistive home health care services to children, adults and seniors in the comfort of their homes. They care for clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Families coping with significant illness or disability need help and support while caring for a family member. BAYADA’s goal is to provide the highest quality home health care services available with compassion, excellence and reliability.
What makes them a Champion in the Community?
BAYADA Home Health Care has been a longtime partner and supporter of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and people with disabilities. After an illness or injury, many people prefer to remain in their own homes, surrounded by family and friends because nothing is better than the comfort of home. BAYADA offers that opportunity — they always put clients first, and make it possible for people of all ages to experience a better quality of life in the comfort of their own homes.
BAYADA Home Health Care is also the sole sponsor of the annual BAYADA Regatta, the nation’s oldest and largest all-adaptive rowing competition for athletes with physical disabilities. Every year, a crowd gathers at the St. Joseph’s University Boathouse on the banks of the Schuylkill River to enjoy exciting races, medal ceremonies, music, entertainment, face painting and crafts for kids throughout the day.
We are very proud to offer BAYADA Home Health Care one of this year’s Champion in the Community Awards! We hope you’ll join us at the Night of Champions this Friday, May 2 at Penns Landing Caterers in South Philadelphia. Click here for more info!
