All roads lead to WVU Medicine Children’s thanks to a month-long partnership with 36 West Virginia auto dealers supporting life-changing care for Mountain State children and families. Together the auto dealerships group raised $661,750.

“West Virginia Automotive Dealers Association (WVADA) has developed an incomparable reputation throughout the region, much thanks to its members,” said Jared Wyrick, president, WVADA. “It’s inspiring to see dealerships join together to help raise the necessary funds needed to improve the health of West Virginia kids. WVU Medicine Children’s treats children from every corner of our state and we are honored to be able to give back.”

Throughout the month of August participating auto dealers contributed $100 from every vehicle sale or made a generous donation to support the new WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital. The nine-story, 150-bed hospital is under construction on WVU Medicine’s main campus in Morgantown, next to J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital.

 “It’s heartwarming to see West Virginia’s automotive dealers join together to raise critical funds needed to ensure our children have healthier futures,” Amy L. Bush, B.S.N., M.B.A., R.N., C.N.O.R., chief operating officer for WVU Medicine Children’s, said. “These auto dealers understand the statewide impact of this transformative facility. We appreciate their outstanding efforts and look forward to continuing the partnership.”
