St. Mary Mercy Hospital invites you to be a part of our 7th Annual 5K for Cancer on Sunday, September 8, 2013.
Why are we having this event? The 5K run/walk is for cancer awareness. It is a celebration of life for cancer survivors, for those who have cancer, and an opportunity for family members and friends to participate to honor or remember a loved one. Proceeds support Cancer Services at St. Mary Mercy Hospital, including transportation for patients traveling to and from the hospital for treatments and necessary products and services from the Helen Palmer Image Recovery Center. Last year, the 5K raised nearly $37,000.
We are deeply committed to serving this community, as well as the community members of tomorrow — you, your children, and their children - in an environment of comprehensive, coordinated, and compassionate care. We hope you will join us in this commitment.
