Lowell General Hospital
TeamWalk for CancerCare
Sunday, May 31, 2020
Walkers and donors for the Lowell General Hospital’s TeamWalk for Cancer Care came through once again this year, officially raising $832,277 to help cancer patients across the Merrimack Valley.
On May 19, the 20th annual TeamWalk was held at LeLacheur Park for the first time, drawing thousands of walkers to the home of the Lowell Spinners and the streets of downtown Lowell. However, the fundraising continues with parties and events through the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30, when the final tally is taken.
“Over the past 20 years, our Cancer Center and this community have built an incredible partnership that has allowed us to expand our ability to care and support cancer patients in this region,” said Jody White, CEO of Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital. “Thank you to Macy’s and the rest of the event’s sponsors, the dozens of volunteers and especially the walkers and donors who support TeamWalk throughout the year.”
TeamWalk funds make a difference in the lives of today’s cancer patients by paying for medications, nutritional supplements, wigs and prostheses, support groups, skilled nursing visits, transportation, mini-grants, and supportive services to patients of all cancer types. Funds raised enable Lowell General Hospital to provide assistance, support, and services to help people feel better, build confidence and instill hope throughout their battle with cancer.
