On Friday, January 13, 2023, Governor Oliver welcomed the Mile A Day (MAD) Moms to the Governor’s Office for a turnover of donated items to the Pohnpei State Hospital pediatric and maternity wards.  Senator Brian Etscheit, Chairman of the Health Committee at the Pohnpei State Legislature was also present at the turnover, along with Senator Jayson Walter, Chief of Hospital Administration Mrs. Merihter Elias Etse, and Chief of Hospital Supply Mr. Salter Etse Jr.


Mrs. Sophia Pretrick represented the MAD Moms and delivered remarks during the turnover.  She shared the history of the MAD Moms group and a recent challenge called the RUNSTREAK challenge that garnered $7,582.25 in donations from sponsors.  These donations were used to purchase items that were then donated to the Pediatric and Maternity wards.  Mrs. Pretrick shared details of their RUNSTREAK challenge that started in November and ran for 39 days ending in December, covering the most tempting and busy times of the year.  The challenge was to walk a mile a day for 39 days and have sponsors pay $1 a day or more.  Mrs. Pretrick reminded everyone that one action can cause a ripple effect, and each of the participants of the RUNSTREAK challenge took action every day.


Governor Oliver expressed his deep appreciation and gratitude to the MAD Moms for their generous donations.  He praised their initiative to not only stay healthy during the holidays but also turn their efforts into something that benefits others.  Their donations not only included items for patients on the pediatric and maternity ward but also wheelchairs, thermoscans, and stethoscopes for healthcare providers.  Senator Brian Etscheit also delivered remarks to express his deep appreciation and gratitude.  He likened their efforts to the “butterfly effect” where one action affects many others.


Dr. Nora Liwy, Chief of the Medical Services Division at the Pohnpei State Hospital, also thanked the MAD Moms for their donations on behalf of the patients and staff of the hospital.  Dr. Liwy noted that the donations are exactly what mothers and newborns need in the pediatric and maternity wards.  On behalf of the Director of the Department of Health Services, Chief of Hospital Administration, Merihter Elias Etse, extended sincere gratitude to the MAD Moms for their generous donations.


Congratulations and thank you to the following participants and sponsors:
