The Marty and Iris Walshin Foundation is proud to announce its newest naming project located at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care. One of the "Imaging Mock Scanner Rooms" will be named In Honor of Donna and Helen Walshin. In the mock scanning room, children will learn what an MRI machine looks and sounds like, go over the tasks they will be asked to do while in the real scanner, and practice laying as still as possible. This creates a wonderful opportunity for children to ask questions and become comfortable with the MRI before participating in an actual scan.

 

The Buerger Center opened in Fall 2015.

The Marty and Iris Walshin Foundation is proud to announce two more naming projects that the Foundation accomplished for 2014. These naming tributes are located at St. John's Riverside Hospital in Yonkers, New York. As part of their Building on Excellence Campaign, the hospital will announce the renovation and refurbishment of the solariums. Two of these solariums will honor the Walshin family. The solarium on the 8th floor will be named the "Marty and Iris Walshin Solarium" and the 7th Floor solarium will be named the "Donna and Helen Walshin Solarium." Both solariums will offer a place for patients and their families and friends to gather, relax and reflect while enjoying the spectacular views of the Palisades and the Hudson River. 

 

For the 2nd year in a row The Foundation was a proud supporter of the Yonkers PBA headshaving fundraising event to benefit St. Baldrick's Foundation which raises money to find a cure for childhood cancers.  The event raised over $100,000. Congratulations to everyone who came out to support this worthy event and charity.

On September 8, 2013 The Marty and Iris Walshin Foundation invited friends and family for the dedication ceremony and luncheon for the newly renovated and refurbished boxing room at the Yonkers Police Athletic League in Yonkers, NY. After six months of work, The Marty Walshin Boxing & Training Gym was dedicated in honor of Marty who did so much for the Yonkers PAL.
