Cardinal Hill Junior Board
Cardinal Hill Hospital’s Junior Board, founded by former CH patient Will Coffman, started Round Ball BASH in 2013. A spin-off of The Kentucky BASH, Round Ball brings together Cardinal Hill friends and UK fans following a UK basketball game. Included in the down-town event, is live music, silent and live auc-tions and special guests of UK Basketball. Funds raised from this event go towards the new Aquatic Center at Cardinal Hill, which includes three pools used for various forms of therapy and is also open for use by the community of Lexington.
The Teen Board is a group of Juniors and Seniors from Fayette and surrounding counties who meet monthly at the hospital to work on a variety of service projects. The students also have opportunities to learn about various medical professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing, etc.
The HANDS (Helping Accomplish Noteworthy Duties Successfully) Awards are presented each year at the Annual Auxiliary Luncheon in conjunction with the KHA Convention. The Award honors hospital auxilians and volunteers for their outstanding service to their hospitals and communities. The 2011-2012 Cardinal Hill Teen Board was the recipient of the Community Outreach/Collaboration Project Award!
