Illinois Spinal Care of Elmhurst is proud to announce its "Year of Wishes" campaign, benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
During this year-long effort, the advanced chiropractic center (located at 275 N. York St. in Elmhurst) will offer special wellness exams in return for in-office donations to the charity, which aims to put hope, strength and joy back into the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions by providing them a magical "wish" experience.
"Our goal is to grant at least two wishes over the course of the year," said Dr. Darrin Redinger, co-owner of Illinois Spinal Care. "We have a lot of work to do, but have agreed as an office to donate our time and services to this great cause."
During the campaign, new and current patients who donate at least $25 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation at Illinois Spinal Care will receive a "Year of Wishes" wellness exam. This special, a $225 value, consists of a consultation, including a health history and examination, a complete set of digital x-rays if required, and a subsequent report of findings meeting, in which all test results and recommendations for care are discussed.
"The best way for members of our community to make a difference during this campaign is to make an appointment for their family to have everyone's spine and posture examined," said Dr. Travis Bertke, co-owner Illinois Spinal Care. "We will also gladly accept direct donations from those looking to help us reach our goal!"
Though Illinois Spinal Care has raised thousands of dollars for various causes throughout the years, Dr. Redinger admits that this is their biggest endeavor yet, with each "wish" averaging $7,400.
"We know we can do this with the help of our very generous patients and the great communities we serve," he said. "Best of all, people can help others while helping themselves by getting the high-quality chiropractic care they need and deserve, all while granting the wish of a child."
