Respite day

On Saturday, September 22, The Wisconsin Lutheran College School of Nursing collaborated with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to host a respite day event on campus for children with special needs and their siblings.

It was great to see the nursing program reaching out and partnering with the community, as well as partnering with other disciplines around campus.

Activities at the respite day included games, face painting, sports, bingo, music, and the highlight, Milwaukee Brewers mascot Bernie Brewer!

We had about 75 children attend this event and more than 140 volunteers. This respite day not only gave the WLC students the chance to learn about special needs, but supported the servant-leadership qualities that are developed and supported within WLC students on and off campus.

Thank you to all who participated and made this day special!!
