Shore 2 Shore 2021 raises funds for Team Hope in Motion

Team HIMS Shore 2 Shore 2021

The MCJR team partners with the not-for-profit medical services organization Team Hope in Motion. Team HIMS provides free surgical treatment for patients in Antigua, Guatemala. These patients suffer from debilitating bone and joint conditions, such as arthritis, and do not have access to medical care. 

One week a year, our surgeon teams go to Guatemala and provide dozens of free joint replacements for those in need. Our teams view these trips as some of the most fulfilling weeks of their lives.

This summer, six men -- including two orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Keith Berend and Dr. Steven Herbst -- took it upon themselves to swim across Lake Michigan to raise support for Team HIMS. The men swam 60 miles relay-style over the course of 28 hours.

 

Check out their amazing journey and their heart for those in Guatemala:
