EAST Trauma Center Challenge




The results of the Summer 2021 EAST Trauma Center Challenge are in!

Thank you to our supporters from 92 trauma centers across the country who joined together to raise money for the EAST Development Fund. During this month-long contest, we were
able to raise $106,787 for programs, awards, and scholarships that fund trauma leaders
who are committed to preventing injury and advancing trauma research! 

In celebration, we congratulate South Nassau Communities Hospital - Oceanside for the most money donated, totaling $10,251! In addition, Sentara Norfolk General Hospital - Norfolk had the most donors among Level I centers, St. Joseph's University Medical Center - Paterson the most donors among Level II centers, Fisher-Titus Medical Center - Norwalk the most donors among Level-III centers, and Texas Children's Hospital - The Woodlands the most donors among Level IV/V centers!  See the Leaderboards below for the final results!

All these winning trauma centers will each receive a coveted framed Hawaiian shirt trophy and a prized lecture from a member of the EAST Board of Directors via Zoom. 

It was a close race, and we thank you all for joining the challenge and encouraging
your colleagues, friends, and family to donate and for keeping the competition fun
with your team photos. If you did not get a chance to share a photo, please send it to managementoffice@east.org so that EAST can acknowledge your support. 

We are excited to be able to use the substantial funds raised this year to continue to

support initiatives for leadership, education, research, and injury control and violence prevention through the EAST Development Fund. You can learn more about the numerous scholarships and awards supported through your generosity by visiting the Scholarships & Awards page. In an environment of scarce funding opportunities, your investment can make a profound impact on developing the next generation of trauma leaders while improving the care of injured patients.

We look forward to next summer's challenge, which will run from July 15 - August 15, 2022.
