Thank you to the Class of 84 from David Gaus

March Matchness: One Goal. No Brackets. Everybody Wins.

In honor of graduating 35 years ago, we hope to raise a $350,000 gift from our class through a special matching funds campaign.  AHD’s “Class of 84 Committee” pledges to match every gift from our classmates up to $175,000, essentially doubling all donations.

Here are video greetings from your classmates who discuss how and why they’re involved with Andean Health. Yes, everyone looks different than they did in 1984, but it’s polite not to mention that too loudly.

If you’re considering donating, please do before July 1 to have your donation matched. And if you already have, thank you so much.

And if you’re curious to learn more about getting involved with Andean Health or visiting our hospitals in Ecuador, reach out to Laura Dries, AHD’s COO:, (619) 788-6833. She can discuss opportunities and connect you with other classmates who have made the trip. Like us, you’ll find it truly rewarding.

AHD’s Class of 84 Committee:  John Burchett, Rachel (Allen) English, Al Harding, Laurie (Giunti) McKeon, Paul O’Hop, Chris Portman, Mary (Schmid) Runger, Maureen Hesburgh Ryan, Jenny Grantham Stein, Mike Stephan, Donna (Ruiz) Urbain, and Tim Willis


2019 Andean Health Bike Ride

For eight years, a group of people who are passionate about the humanitarian work of Andean Heath have gotten together annually to learn of the progress of AHD’s work in Ecuador while doing something that they love: cycling!

This year the group ventures to Crater Lake and the Oregon Cascades to ride some spectacular routes, all the while helping raise money and awareness for Hesburgh Hospital in Santo Domingo, Ecuador. Please visit our Donate page to support the campaign of one of these riders! All donations go straight to our programs at Hesburgh Hospital. Thank you!

2019 Riders: Greg Allen, Jane Allen, Mike Allen, Hahns Burg, Dave Cutler, Laura Dries, Jim Dunn, Pat English, Rachel English, David Gaus, Alan Gianotti, Mike Heisler, Judy Jesiolowski, Phil Kalamaros, Mike Roemer, Tom Rolfs, Matt Rudolf, David Stein, David Thompson, and Mike Whyte
