SEBRING, Fla. — Just in time for the holiday season, doctors from AdventHealth Sebring, committed to community well-being both inside and outside the hospital walls, donated 150 bicycles to children in need across Highlands County. This initiative, paid for with funds from the medical staff dues account, is all part of a larger effort to spread joy and encourage active lifestyles for kids across the community.

Every doctor on staff at AdventHealth Sebring actively participated in this meaningful project, supporting eight local elementary schools across the county.

The physicians said they jumped at the chance to help provide a healthy and active means for children to embrace physical activity.

"I am so pleased that we are able to bring happiness to so many deserving children in our community during the Christmas Holiday,” said Dr. Thomas Shimshak, chief of the medical staff at AdventHealth Sebring. “We hope to continue this special tradition each year."

"It is such a joy to see how our medical staff worked as a team to give back to our community this year by providing bicycles to over 150 local children,” said Dr. Victoria Selley, chief medical officer at AdventHealth Sebring. “Giving back is part of what it means to be a health care provider. This project was about showing our hearts to the community and providing those in need a little extra love this holiday season."

AdventHealth Sebring looks forward to continuing its tradition of giving back and making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
