Every day, the experts at UF Health TraumaOne stand ready to provide lifesaving care. As the only adult and pediatric Level I trauma center in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, TraumaOne plays a critical role in the safety and well-being of our community. UF Health Heroes save lives, allowing those who have suffered from traumatic injury or illness to return home to their families, building healthy and strong communities.
TraumaOne’s mission is not only to provide life-saving care to trauma patients; each year TraumaOne helps educate over 15,000 people in our community through its injury prevention programs.
To date, the Run for Heroes 5K has raised over $40,000 to support trauma injury prevention and community education at UF Health Jacksonville. Most recently funds supported Stop the Bleed training and bleeding control kits for local area schools and first responder training courses.
Consider running today in honor of one of our Superheroes: An individual who has overcome a life-threatening injury and the many Heroes who stand ready each and every day protecting our community through expert trauma care.
