OhioHealth Associates Participate in Dublin Corporate Charity Cup
Last month, OhioHealth associates participated in the Dublin Corporate Charity Cup. The Dublin Corporate Charity Cup, sponsored by OhioHealth, in partnership with the Dublin Chamber, City of Dublin and Dublin City Schools, is a two-day event where employees from area businesses and organizations compete in a variety of friendly competition challenges to promote wellness, team building and community involvement.
“The goal of the Dublin Corporate Charity Cup is to bring our corporate community together for two days of camaraderie and team-building through friendly competition, all while raising money for local nonprofit organizations, Mark Flesch, President of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce said, “The Dublin Chamber of Commerce is grateful for our partnership with OhioHealth, which makes this event possible.”
The event, hosted by Dublin Scioto High School, raises money for charities in Dublin and Dublin City Schools. Since the inception of the program in 2017, 65,000 dollars has been raised.
“We are honored and proud that our associates year after year continue to join in on the Charity Cup activities and community involvement,” President of OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital Armin Rahmanian said, “For seven years now, OhioHealth has supported and been involved in the event, strengthening our relationship with the city and Dublin City Schools which helps us serve our community better as a healthcare system.”
Nearly 50 OhioHealth associates participated in the games. OhioHealth also provided on-site athletic trainers for the event.
“With support from OhioHealth, the City of Dublin and Dublin City Schools, the Dublin Chamber Corporate Charity Cup promotes healthy fun and builds relationships among our businesses and employees, strengthening those bonds within our community,” Flesch said.
“Community relationships and partnerships is what we’re all about,” OhioHealth Sports Medicine Manager Eddie Neville said, “OhioHealth’s mission is to serve our communities and our sports medicine team is truly the “front door” for OhioHealth within the Dublin community—we take that seriously and this is just another example.”
Neville oversees OhioHealth’s Sports Medicine athletic trainers, strength and conditioning specialists and Licensed Social Workers for Dublin City Schools.
“Providing all the sports medicine care for the student athletes within the Dublin School district allows us the opportunity to make a difference within the district every day and participating in the Charity Cup really takes that a step further and allows me personally to give back to the community while supporting the Dublin Chamber and all its members,” Neville said.
Going on year three, this year Neville competed in axe throwing, the golf chipping challenge and kickball. Other activities for the event included pickleball, volleyball, cornhole, giant pong, skeeball, soccer darts, home run derby, distance relay, yoga and more.
“It’s really the comradery you build amongst all the different organizations and teams participating in the event,” Neville said, “And kicking a little butt while representing OhioHealth doesn’t hurt, of course!”
