BACKGROUND:

On May 9, 2012, Helen McDonagh, owner of Massage Envy Spa of Glendale, inspired by Kim Kardashian’s quip regarding her desire to run for mayorof Glendale, mounted a faux mayoral campaign to raise awareness and funds for Glendale’s needy children.  While McDonagh has no interest in obtaining political office at this time, she is committed to campaigning for the health and wellness of Glendale’s low-income families who, without Glendale Healthy Kids, are not able to provide much needed medical care for their children.

From May 9 through June 30th, to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, McDonagh is campaigning for “Mayor of Glendale.” All campaign contributions will go to Glendale Healthy Kids, with an ultimate goal of $10,000 in donations.

ABOUT GLENDALE HEALTHY KIDS:

Glendale Healthy Kids mission is to ensure that children have access to health care and health education. Their vision is to create a community in which every child has optimal health. In 1993, the Glendale Memorial Hospital Foundation formed a committee to determine the health needs of under-provided children in the community. A needs assessment revealed that uninsured children of the working poor were particularly limited in their ability to receive preventative care. Local emergency rooms and school nurses were providing primary care to the children who had no other access to physicians, dentists or specialists. As a result, Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center, Verdugo Hills Hospital, Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale Unified School District, and the City of Glendale joined together and formed Glendale Healthy Kids. GlendaleHealthyKids.org.
