the torch Fall 2016, Issue 3 - Page 23

2 From the Chair
I hope you enjoyed this summer and found time to be with family and friends . Maybe you went fishing as I did , or swimming or just relaxed , watching the Olympics . Listening to the Olympic stories , it was obvious that it was never just a singular athlete but a whole team of coaches , family , friends and supporters — a whole community behind each competitor . All of them focused on one goal , willing to move mountains to produce the best of the best , worthy of the gold !
In such sport you cannot rest on your laurels ; you have to prove yourself each and every day . That makes me think of Baylor Scott & White Health . It ’ s inspiring to see the dedication and relentless effort each member of the Baylor family puts forth each day with but one goal — to provide the best possible care to every patient who comes to Baylor .
At Baylor , it ’ s not about a nation ’ s pride and gold medals but about patients ’ lives . We too have coaches , family , friends and supporters behind us willing to move mountains so that we can do our very best . Truly , gold medal stuff happens here every day . With no winners ’ podium , no anthems , no applause except maybe for our great patients who go home with a smile on their faces and appreciation in their hearts — for
they are the real winners at Baylor .
In this torch , you will read about some of our newest board members . They are a remarkable group of individuals who have many different talents and experiences but share one great thing in common . They want to learn , to coach , to support and to help Baylor be the best it can possibly be . They join an already incredibly strong Foundation board that has shown its commitment once again with 100 percent donor participation this fiscal year !
You will also read about our three major fundraising events coming this fall . Our Grand Rounds ® Golf Tournament that supports our residents ’ and fellows ’ training , our Celebrating Women luncheon that supports a cure for breast cancer , and the Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute Healthy Harvest Fun Walk and 5K Run . Each is vital in its funding of critical needs in North Texas . If you have not made plans to participate , it ’ s not too late — sign up today !
On behalf of our patients , doctors , nurses , technicians , administrative staff and all the family at Baylor , thank you for doing what you do to help us go for the gold !
