Members from the Macedonia AME Church in Seaford presented a check Aug. 8 in the amount of $500 to Steve Rose, president and CEO of Nanticoke Health Services and Renee’ Morris, executive director of the Nanticoke Health Foundation.

Funds were raised by members of the Macedonia AME Church on May 6 at the second annual Giving Back to the Community 5K Walkathon. The walk was originally scheduled for April 22, but was postponed due to weather.

The proceeds from the walkathon will benefit the Pegeen and Samantha Brown Pediatric Fund, which was established in memory of two special ladies from the community who were passionate about children.

With the help of this fund, the pediatric area in the emergency department at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital is designed to make children feel comfortable in the event that an emergency visit to the hospital is needed.
