Adventist HealthCare Joins Komen Race for the Cure
Adventist HealthCare was honored to join the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure 5K in Washington, D.C., on June 2. Forty members of our team, Always Hoping for a Cure, joined the event to fight against breast cancer. We are pleased to announce that Adventist HealthCare was also designated as the top fundraising team for the race’s grantee division, which is organizations in the area that have received grants from Komen.
In 2011, Adventist HealthCare received a Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant – a $917,000 grant over four years – that will allow us to expand our existing Navigate to Health Rapid Referral Program. This program provides comprehensive breast care services to help bridge the gap to medically underserved, low-income, minority in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties. Adventist HealthCare provides more than 1,800 mammograms to low-income women each year to ensure this life saving procedure is accessible to those who may need it most.
