Aurora BayCare Medical Center donates $10,000 to De Pere Riverwalk

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

De Pere, WI – To help enhance community wellness in the community, Aurora BayCare Medical Center today donated $10,000 to the De Pere Riverwalk.

“Aurora BayCare Medical Center is dedicated to improving the wellness of our communities and we believe the De Pere Riverwalk is helping with that mission,” said Dr. Paul Summerside, chairman of Aurora BayCare Medical Center’s board of managers.

“Providing these resources for the community is something we take great pride in. For example, last fall, Aurora BayCare constructed a one mile walking path around its campus to give caregivers and the community a safe area to be outside and be active.”

“The City of De Pere is grateful for Aurora Bay Care’s commitment to our community,” said De Pere Mayor Mike Walsh. “We are very grateful for their generosity toward the De Pere Riverwalk and Wildlife Viewing Pier and its enjoyment for years to come.”

The De Pere Riverwalk first opened in July of 2012. The Riverwalk is linked to Voyageur Park and the east downtown district, starting with a bridge at the De Pere locks and connecting to a viewing pier jutting into the Fox River.
