UIHC Recognition at Stroke Camp

UIHC and Erin Rindels were recently recognized for their ongoing support of the Retreat & Refresh Stroke Camp. The camp is run by a group based out of Peoria, IL, and was started by Marylee Nunley in 2004 after her husband had a stroke. Retreat & Refresh holds camps throughout the country, with various hospitals sponsoring each camp.

UIHC originally partnered with Mercy-CR and St. Luke’s in helping to sponsor the camp. Sponsors typically assist with financing, event planning and promotion, and finding volunteers.

Since UIHC’s shared sponsorship of the camp, Erin has acted as the UIHC camp contact. She has also volunteered at the weekend-long event for a number of years.
