For the past eight years, kickball players, nurses and doctors alike have fundraised for new technology at CHI St. Alexius. This year, at the 8th Annual SAKT kickball tournament, it was the CHI Nursery in need of an upgrade. Dozens of teams competed for bragging rights, but also to purchase three infant warming tables.
"It's just so nice to see the community come together with all the teams and sponsors and just everybody comes together to fundraise for this event," said Erica Solseth, CHI St. Alexius Health.
Each warming table costs around $10,000 and is used to keep infants warm during examination. Last year, through fundraising, the neonatal ICU received a new incubator.
