CRNA group puts best foot forward in fight against COVID

July 8, 2020 posted by Staff Editor

A group of us decided to sign up to do a virtual 10k run through virtualstrides.com. It helped us raise over $85,000 of PPE for healthcare workers. The majority of our “CoRUNavirus” squad are Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists at M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center, who are tackling COVID-19 daily.

We challenged ourselves to do a 10k on June 20, where our 19 teammates ran throughout the day, while sending motivational texts, photos, and videos to each other. We made t-shirts with our faces on the virus. We received a COVID medal with hand sanitizer and a sticker thermometer. We were very proud to be a part of coronavirus relief while representing M Health Fairview.
