NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The 97th Albuquerque Police Department Cadet Class recently presented a check for $2,200 to the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital (UNMCH).

Every year, the police academy asks the cadets to think of a way to give back to the community. The 97th cadet class thought one of the most important issues in the community was the children and decided to raise money for the UNMCH.

With only a month to raise money, the cadets called upon family and friends to give donations. The cadets also received donations from other officers.

UNMCH is a division of the University of New Mexico Health Science Center. As an academic medical center, UNMCH is staffed with health care providers who are expertly trained to provide the most advanced neonatology and pediatric care available in the state.

UNMCH offers the highest level of intensive care for children and premature infants in New Mexico. Each year, UNMCH cares for more than 41,000 of New Mexico’s children.
