Employees of Memorial Health System (MHS) in Abilene wore blue jeans at work for another “Jeans Day” fundraiser on Fridays throughout the month of August. Employees make a donation, of at least $5, and are allowed to wear blue jeans at work. For August, a total donation of $1,155 was presented to Tori Murphy, organizer of Derrik’s Ride. To date, this is the largest donation made for Jeans Day by the employees of MHS. Derrik’s Ride is an event to help in the fight against childhood cancer, which features a poker run, bike show, dinner, auction, live band, and more. This year’s event, to be held in Old Abilene Town, is September 17th. For more information, search “Derrik’s Ride” on Facebook or call 785-280-3178. The Jeans Day was organized by the MHS Employer of Choice (EOC) committee. Pictured from left are: Pam Schoemaker, EOC committee member; Murphy; and Billy Hansen, EOC committee member.
