On Aug. 16, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful gave its Adopter of the Year award to Renown Health. Leo Horishny and Kira Krayk, members of the REACT employee committee at Renown, were joined by Wendy Damonte, Vice President of Advocacy and Community Partnership, to accept the award at KTMB’s Raise the River event at Idlewild Park.
In addition, Randy Harmatz, Vice President of Quality for Renown, is a new board member of KTMB and was introduced at Raise the River.
Renown was given the award for REACT’s work in leading a year-round cleanup of John Champion Park in which other employees and community members participated, including the Orvis School of Nursing Alumni group. The award also honors Renown and REACT’s attendance and support of KTMB annual cleanup events.
The REACT group inspires better health in our communities by conserving and protecting our natural resources and promoting environmental health to employees. They have organized the annual Earth Day event at Renown as well as coordinated recycling efforts throughout the health network.
