The Hendricks Regional Health Foundation has teamed up with the Avon High School Student Government to host a first-time carnival event packed with games, food, bounce houses and t-shirt chalk bombs.
It will be held April 27 at Hendricks Regional Health YMCA in Avon.
The money raised from Carnival for a Cause will go towards purchasing NicView cameras for the Special Care Nursery babies at Hendricks Regional Health. NicViews are a web-based camera system that provides a way for parents and family who have to leave the hospital to see their baby 24 hours a day.
“As a health system serving patients from around and beyond Hendricks County, we recognized the special challenges faced by families from long distances who cannot be at the bedside of a child hospitalized over an extended period of time,” explains Ann Haupt, executive director of the Hendricks Regional Health Foundation. “Whether it is to combat parents’ anxiety to leave their baby, to allow siblings or grandparents to meet their new family member for the first time, these cameras will fill the gap when families are separated, and allow families to see their babies around the clock.”
