About the Foundation

University Health Care Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to the development and acquisition of financial resources to ensure University Hospital's excellence in the delivery of healthcare services to our community and region. The mission of University Health Care Foundation is accomplished through your gifts of time, talent and financial resources. Countless opportunities lie ahead to add to the investment begun in 1978 by those community leaders who worked selflessly to establish University Health Care Foundation.


About the Miracle Mile Walk

The Miracle Mile Walk began in 2001 with 90 walkers who raised $3,000 to support breast cancer awareness. Queenie Jones, a former Kendall Company employee, and past University Health Care Foundation board member came up with the idea of the Miracle Mile Walk to bring breast cancer awareness to the community and to raise money to fight breast cancer. University Health Care Foundation implemented the walk and has nurtured its growth since it's inception.
