Chugach’s Huntsville Regional Office recently accepted the challenge to participate in the 2017 Liz Hurley Ribbon Run and to raise funds to support the Huntsville Hospital Foundation’s Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund. The proceeds from this year’s race will go toward the purchase of a 3D tomosynthesis mammography machine, making breast cancer easier to detect.
Chugach Government Solutions was a Gold Level Sponsor for the event. Rachael Harvey was the Captain for Team Chugach. Chugach participants included Sonia Kropf; Scott and Nurten Davis; Dan, Melissa and Nate Fenza; Michael and Kathleen Gallagher; Joe and Tammie Fullington; Bill and Katrena Olson; and Heather Carrero.
“I would like to personally thank everyone in the Chugach Family for their support, donations and kind words,” Rachael Harvey said. “I am so grateful. As a Breast Cancer Survivor, this is a cause close to my heart.”
The Liz Hurley Ribbon Run features a 5K run and a Survivors’ Walk. The 5K course takes runners through beautiful downtown Huntsville. Huntsville Hospital Foundation was established in 1978 as a non-profit organization with a mission to develop relationships and financial resources to support health care programs and services. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, corporations and organizations, the foundation’s physicians and staff are able to provide outstanding medical care, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. The foundation relies on philanthropic support to provide the cutting-edge equipment and invaluable programs that benefit patients.
The foundation’s website states there is no finer or more appropriate gift than one which offers health and hope to others. A gift to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation is a gift to our community.
