Everyone at GIH strongly believes in community support. Here are just a few of the organizations that we have been proud to support:
Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Gala – Carolina’s Chapter
GastroIntestinal Healthcare has been a sponsor of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Gala. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Since CCFA’s founding over four decades ago, they have remained at the forefront of research in Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Today, the organization funds cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research.
Raleigh Rescue Mission
GIH annually supports the Raleigh Rescue Mission with a $1000 donation during the holiday season. The Raleigh Rescue Mission offers Emergency Overnight Services, Recovery and Rehabilitation Services, Adult Education Center, Children’s Development Center, and a Medical Clinic.
Get Your Rear in Gear 5K in Raleigh, NC
We have been proud financial sponsors of this event for several years. We have also directly participated in the event by organizing a team of walkers comprised of our physicians and staff, their friends, family members, and patients. Get Your Rear in Gear events are designed to unite people, cities, and states throughout the USA, to provide support and hope for those who have had their lives affected by our nation’s second leading cause of cancer deaths, and to encourage individuals of all ages to get screened for colon cancer.
Toys For Tots
GIH not only personally donates gifts to this charity effort, but also proudly serves as a drop-off location for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
Raleigh Christian Academy
GastroIntestinal Healthcare has been a proud supporter of the Theater Arts Department of North Raleigh Christian Academy for several years. We are proud of the mission and values of this fine educational institution. North Raleigh Christian Academy is a community Christian school assisting families by providing excellence in academics, fine arts and athletics, while instilling Biblical principles in students’ lives that they might impact their society for Christ.
We are proud to announce our recent sponsorship of the Philharmonic Association – Triangle Youth Music. The Philharmonic Association seeks to foster the love of great music in young musicians by sponsoring eight musical ensembles. These ensembles include three full symphony orchestras and three string orchestras that study and perform great classical music. The different orchestras seek to produce opportunities for 4th through 12th-grade musicians of various levels of proficiency.
Corporate Health Fairs
It’s always gratifying to see local companies make a personal investment in their employees by offering corporate health fairs. Over the years we have participated in as many of these events as possible in order to help communicate the importance of good gastrointestinal health. We have accepted invitations from such organizations as RDU International Airport, Springfield Baptist Church, The Body Shop, and the Upper Room Family and Ministries Health Fair.
