At this year's 4th Annual Walk to Wellness we raised a total of $7,337 and had an estimated 160 participants. We could not have done this without the generous support of our walkers and sponsors. We sincerely thank you for all you have done. We are very happy to announce that we will be celebrating our 5th year anniversary of the B.A.C. Walk to Wellness next fall with a twist! Participants are in for a sure treat with so many fun and exciting features for the whole family! Be sure to check our web site and Facebook for updates on current festivities. You can also donate throughout the year via our user friendly PayPal option on our web site. From all of us at the B.A.C. Walk to Wellness, thank you for your support as we continue to help those that need it most.
Dr. Rene Rubin, Director of Multidisciplinary Tumors at Hahnemann/Drexel Medical School will be at Wellshire Farms after the walk for an informational session about women's health. A BBQ lunch will be provided.
The Greater Philadelphia Cancer Foundation-In Honor of Barbara A. Colameco was founded by Dr. Rene Rubin and Wellshire to help those who are unable to make their oncology appointments due to the expenses of transportation. Barbara, co-founder of Wellshire with husband, Lou, saw these people in need and created the fund to help them. All of the money raised goes towards this foundation. Barbara was blessed to see her mission come to fruition during the inaugural Walk to Wellness in 2009. In March 2010, Barbara lost her three year fight to breast cancer, and in memory of her, Wellshire continued the B.A.C. Walk to Wellness.
Monetary Funds raised to date: $130,792 and counting!
