Foundation Calls for 2018 Gurney Games Sponsors

COVINGTON – St. Tammany Hospital Foundation is seeking sponsorships for the 2018 Gurney Games presented by fl+WB architects, March 25, 2 to 5 p.m., at the Covington Trailhead.

“We were thrilled to bring back this unique and wildly fun event last year,” said Melanie Rudolph, foundation specialist.  “Our community, employees and corporate partners had a blast, and we look forward to another exciting Gurney Games this year!”

Gurney Games is a fundraising event benefiting St. Tammany Hospital Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.  This exciting event features teams of costumed racers navigating hospital gurneys through a fun and challenging obstacle course. In addition to the race, teams also parade down the street and are judged on costuming, gurney décor and fan favorite.

There are many opportunities to be involved in Gurney Games: you may sponsor a St. Tammany Parish Hospital department team, form a team of your own or sponsor an event area or raceway sign. Whichever way you choose to participate, Gurney Games is a unique opportunity to gain exposure for your business while also demonstrating your commitment to the Northshore community and St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

Gurney Games will take place at the Covington Trailhead. N. New Hampshire St. will be closed off between E. Lockwood and Plaza Drive. The games are open to the public and will include food and beverage for purchase, music, dancing, a children’s play area and more.
