Beth Muir, YPC Chair & Donate2Date Chair

Beth currently enjoys her role in Risk Management for Lockton Companies. When not managing risk she dedicates her time as the Young Professionals Chapter (YPC) Chair.  Beth joined YPC after being asked to participate as a bachelorette in the inaugural Donate2Date auction in 2011. Having had such a great experience with the group, she has committed herself to being actively involved. Her passion for helping others and volunteering has allowed her to serve on the board of her benevolence committee at Lockton Companies and on the Emerging Leaders Council for Mile High United Way. Being able to serve as Chair for an organization that supports Children’s Hospital Colorado not only feeds her passion it touches her heart to know she is being an advocate for children in need.

Kristin Boritzke, Community Service Chair

Kristin is thrilled to be the new Community Service Chair for the Young Professionals of Children’s Hospital Colorado! She currently volunteers at Kidstreet, a uniquely designed program to provide daily rehabilitation services for infants and children with complex medical needs once a week. This wonderful experience has left her wanting to get more involved and she’s honored by the opportunity to serve on such a meaningful committee. Giving back to the community has always been a passion of hers, and she feels like she hit the jackpot being able to give back to Children’s Hospital Colorado. Keep your calendars open for upcoming Community Service events throughout the year! We can’t wait to see you there! 

Stacey Putka, Community Service Chair Sub-Chair

Stacey could not be more excited to be the Community Service Chair for the Young Professionals of Children’s Hospital Colorado. She has been a volunteer at Children’s for the past three years and was lucky enough to spend one day a week with the children at the hospital as Miss Colorado in 2014. It has been through her one on one interactions with the kids at the hospital that she has developed a passion for getting volunteers like you in to work with these kids and their families. As you are reading this email, it is obvious that you want to help these kiddos receive the best care possible. After you spend time with the kids in the hospital and supporting organizations, you will feel even more connected to the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado and it will be impossible for you to stay away! Join us in 2016 for fun community service events at Children’s Hospital Colorado and organizations that support the hospital like Brent’s Place and the Ronald McDonald House!
