Stacey, who is personally involved with the hospital, developed the event last year and commented, "I am thrilled we were able to host another successful event this year for Duke Children's. This event not only raises funds for the hospital, but also provides the patients a moment to forget their illness and enjoy being a child."
The 2017 Faces of Research event brought over 200 Duke researchers together with VWR employees and suppliers. During the event, the group formed small teams to run, climb and jump through a challenging obstacle course. Each team selected and participated in honor of a specific patient at Duke Children's. Information packets were created for each team which included a personal story about the child they were competing on behalf of. The winning team earned a trophy, bragging rights and the opportunity to hand out medals to each child involved in the event.
