The 90th Anniversary Celebration Walk for Research
The STTI Foundation for Nursing will host the 90th Anniversary Celebration Walk for Research during the biennial convention to benefit the Research Fund.
This year only 18 out of 130 applicants were awarded a small nursing research grant due to lack of funding. The Foundation has set a goal to increase funding available for grants by 100 percent by 2020 to support more deserving nurses.
Who should participate?
The Walk for Research event is suitable for everyone from beginners to athletes. Participants may raise additional support by seeking pledges from colleagues, family, and friends.
If you prefer to sleep, join Sleep In for Research and support nurses simply by sleeping.
Encourage your chapter to participate in the Chapter Challenge. Chapters who collect combined member donations of US $500 or more will receive an engraved paver. The paver is a brick engraved with the chapter name that will placed in the garden at STTI headquarters. Donations must be turned in to the Foundation by the start of the walk on Monday, 18 November 2013.
