Moffatt Thomas Recipient of The Luke Award

St. Luke’s Health Foundation and St. Luke’s Children’s Advisory Board presented Moffatt Thomas with The Luke Award at a reception held on January 17, 2013.

The Luke Award recognizes individuals and businesses or organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to fundraising efforts for the Children’s Hospital.

Every year, hundreds of volunteers and businesses support five special events to raise funds and awareness for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.  Thousands of hours given by these individuals and organizations have helped ensure that the children of our region have the depth of pediatric medical services only available at a children’s hospital.

Luke is . . . the essence that resides in every child receiving care at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.  From a teenage boy with cancer to a little girl injured on the playground, Luke is the strength children pull from to battle illness and mend wounds.  Luke helps our critically ill young patients to smile, and gives them the courage to face life at its most difficult.  And Luke is, above all, the compassionate spirit of everyone who has helped the young patients at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.
