Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center will host its first annual
Cancer Walk on Saturday,
Sept. 29, at 9 a.m. The HRRMC Cancer Walk will take the place of the American
Cancer Society’s Tenderfoot Cancer Climb, a longstanding community event.
This year’s user-friendly route will start and end on the HRRMC hospital
campus and is a little over 2 miles. Walkers will start after a brief
address from a cancer survivor, and all survivors will be recognized.
The monies raised by the Walk will be deposited in an oncology fund administered
by the HRRMC Foundation. All proceeds will benefit local oncology patients.
Funds may be used for wigs, medications, gas cards, massage services,
or equipment needed to care for oncology patients.
To register for the event, visit www.hrrmc.com and click on the Cancer
Walk button on the home page. The cost of the event is $35 and includes
an event t-shirt.
Cancer survivors are not required to pay the event fee, but do need to register.
Sponsorship opportunities are no longer available; however, donations are welcome.
