This past Tuesday we officially launched our foundation at the University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital! We are so lucky to have this opportunity. Caitlin and I have dreamed of creating something of our own and we could not be more excited to start our foundation off with the partnership in the Pediatric Behavioral Health Unit at the Masonic Children’s Hospital.
When Caitlin & I visited this segment of the hospital a few months ago we were taken back by the lack of public awareness and funding the unit and its patients receive. There was a huge area of need and Caitlin and myself are elated to be making an impact by providing our time and financial support through a $100,000 pledge to the hospital!
The pledge will go toward a variety of programs, including a journaling initiative that will help patients find healing, self-confidence and motivation through expressing what’s on their mind and what they aspire to accomplish in the future. Special thanks to CHOICE Bank as they’ve helped provide the journals and we can’t thank them enough!
Caitlin and I will also provide support through restorative exercises such as a yoga, which Caitlin is deeply passionate about. Overall, we are thrilled about this launch and can’t wait to see how the Thielen Foundation and its partners can make a real impression throughout the Minnesota community.
We already have a few great partners and are looking to add more as the year goes on. If you’re interested in partnering or making a financial contribution to the Thielen Foundation, please visit our donate page.
Looking forward to great things to come!
Adam & Cait
