Annual motorcycle run raised money for scholarship

Bolingbrook – Nearly $1,800 was raised for the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation’s nursing scholarship during the annual “Nurses for Tomorrow” Bike Run sponsored by Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital last month. The 60-mile ride, which took place Sept. 28, started at the hospital and ended at Buffalo Rock State Park in Ottawa. It had to be re-routed from the original destination – Starved Rock State Park in Utica – because areas of Starved Rock were closed due to heavy rains weeks earlier.

 

The event was a family affair for Julie Grivetti, RN, clinical coordinator of the hospital’s post-anesthesia care, same-day surgery and ambulatory care units. Grivetti and her husband, Bill, who live in Marseilles, rode a Harley Davidson Street Glide; their 25-year-old son and some of his friends also participated. Grivetti said she plans to participate in the event every year to support the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation’s nursing scholarship.

 

“If anybody knows that we need more nurses, it’s me,” the 13-year nurse said.

 

Derek Cazeau, executive director of the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation, expressed his appreciation to the bike run participants: “Future nurses will benefit from the generosity demonstrated by our community through this event.”
