网上买球软件 基金会 Annual 网上买球软件 5K raises more than $60,000 for the Sheldon E. 戈德堡乳房护理中心

11/02/2022
超过700名参赛者, 步行者, cheering spectators and volunteers crowded the streets and sidewalks of Solomons in a show of pink for 网上买球软件’s 13th Annual 乳房 Cancer 5K Walk/Run on Oct. 15. The record-setting crowd brought in nearly $61,000 to benefit the Sheldon E. 戈德堡乳房护理中心 at 网上买球软件.

“This event is so much more than a run/walk,” said 网上买球软件 基金会 Trustee and 5K Committee Chair Barry Friedman. “5K是积极的, uplifting experience for everyone involved and there is such a strong sense of hope and community. It’s 次 like this when the light of our community shines the brightest.对一些人来说, it was a way to show their support for a great cause, 但对其他人来说, 这一事件有更深的含义. Many came to support a mom, to remember a friend, to celebrate a survivor or to honor a loved one.

Friedman said proceeds from the race will be used to expand support services available to all patients at the center. 自成立以来, the 乳房 Cancer 5K has raised more than $400,000 to support the critical work of the Sheldon E. 戈德堡乳房护理中心. These funds have helped further the center’s mission to provide women and men in Southern Maryland access to an experienced team of breast health experts and the most sophisticated technology available today. Most recently, 网上买球软件 affiliated with the Duke Cancer Network for cancer care. This relationship provides patients in the tri-county region with access to cancer research, treatment advances and clinical trials only available at the best cancer hospitals in the country.

Another major focus of the annual event is awareness. Studies show that one woman in eight will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. 如果发现得早, the five-year survival rate is 99 percent for breast cancer that has not spread beyond the breast. The statistics are sobering in Calvert County, which has a higher rate of breast cancer deaths than both the state of Maryland and the U.S. 平均.

网上买球软件 基金会 Board Chair Denise Bowman shared her own experience with breast cancer. “We talk about the rates of cancer being higher in our area and I am one of those statistics. I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at age 55. That's a number, in Calvert County, that is above the state and national average. But I truly believe that 网上买球软件 and its cancer care program can create survivors among all of us. 我不去想诊断结果. 我不考虑治疗. 我想成为一个幸存者. I think about being able to continue to live my life.” Bowman encourages all women to get their annual mammograms acknowledging that early detection does in fact save lives.

总成绩最高的是丹尼·贝内特, 52, with a time of 18:13 and Asbury Solomons took home the prize for having the largest group/team of participants for the fourth year in a row. In addition to thanking Asbury for their support, on behalf of the 5K Committee Friedman also extended a special thank you to all 5K sponsors including Sneade’s Ace Home Center; Asbury Solomons; Barrett & Associates; Bird Barkman Team; Brother’s Johnson; Primary Residential Mortgage, 公司.; A & W保险服务公司.; State’s Attorney Bob Harvey; Cedar Point Federal Credit Union; Comfort Keepers; Dr. Ramona Crowley Goldberg; Empire Graphics; End Hunger in Calvert County; Flying Frog Fitness and the Prince Frederick Shopping Center; Garner Exteriors; Spalding Consulting; American 放射学; Al & Seda Richards; Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant; Mike Jordan, Century 21 New Millennium; Marianne Harms, in Honor of Denise Bowman; Millennial Marketing Agency; Synectic Solutions, 公司.; Passport Title – Law Offices of Jacki Meiser, PC; Personalized Therapy, LLC; Ambry 遗传学 and State Farm Insurance, Philip Riehl Agency.
