Youth Prepare for a New Year

MIKE Program empowers youth to be health leaders--ambassadors of healthy kidneys--through education, mentorship and community outreach. It is a mission that guides staff, volunteers and youth to improve the health of young people and their communities. The outreach happens in the classroom and throughout the community.

Supporters of MIKE Program attended An Autumn Evening on September 14, 2012, to highlight the community commitment to improving the health of teens. The event is MIKE Program's only fund raising event of the year. While a list of supporters and sponsors are attached to every fund raising event, a large variety of supporters from the community attended the event to encourage the youth that their health matters.Six teens from De La Salle North Catholic High School attended the event, along with their health teacher, David Mickola.

MIKE Program Sponsors included Fred Meyer, DaVita, Geffen Mesher and Company, Eli Lilly, United Healthcare, SIGMA Investment Management, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Legacy Health and the Oregon Health Authority's Office of Equity and Inclusion. Media sponsors included The Skanner News, which featured MIKE Program in May; along with KBNP The Money Station, OSI Photography, Swoon Imagery and Vo Minh McBurney Videography. Contributing sponsors included Roy Jay Enterprises; PrintSync; One Up NW; Bullivante, Houser, Bailey and Providence Health and Services.

Their support will help MIKE Program mentor more youth in the coming year. As Nicolas, one of the attending youth at the event stated in a video premiered that evening, "MIKE Program changed my life."
