Akron Rotarian Dr. Jeff Kempf was recognized for his vision in the development of The St. Damien Collaborative for the Improvement of Pediatrics in Haiti.  This is a unique partnership of US Children's Hospitals and Universities.
The Akron Rotary Club and other clubs in District 6630 were very supportive and involved in providing funding when Dr. Kempf orchestrated sending a team of physicians to St. Damien and in turn brought their team to Akron for training. 
St. Damien Children's Hospital has partnered with collaborative members from Akron Children's Hospital, Alpert Medical School, Brown University, University of Connecticut, Dell Children's Hospital. East Tennessee State University, The University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital, Nebraska Medical Center, Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital and the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughter, as well as others as part of the St. Damien Collaborative.
During the fundraiser, Mitch Albom, author of  Finding Chika and Tuesdays with Morrie, did several readings.
