The 5th annual BVRMC A.W.A.R.E. 5K Walk/Run Event was held on Saturday, October 6. There were nearly 400 registered and just over $18,000 was collected in support of cancer awareness. The funds will be used to assist BVRMC patients (both men and women) in treatment for any kind of cancer all year long.
We would like to thank the following organizations for their support with this important event: BVRMC Engineering/Maintenance Department, Public Safety Department, Galva-Holstein Schools, Community Education, KAYL/KKIA and Matt Fisher.
We would also like to express appreciation to the following individuals for volunteering their time: Alta-Aurelia Cheerleaders, BVU students Xochitl de Anda and Jose Alonso, Cindy Bosley, John Brostad, Glee Crippin, Grace Ivey, Molly Lamoureux, Brenda McVinua, Storm Lake St. Mary's Cheerleaders, Scott Schuelke, and Jan Travis.
We could not have done this without the financial support of the following sponsors: Brown's Shoe Fit, Buena Vista Regional Medical Center, Central Bank, Citizen's First National Bank, Comfort Collections, Jason Dierking, M.D. Board Certified General Surgeon, Family Dental Center -- Drs. Gregory and Christopher Hansen, D.D.S., Hillshire BRANDS, Security Trust and Savings Bank, and Trimark Physicians Group.
Other donations we'd like to mention are: BV County Employees and Hillshire Brands employees.
Thanks to all for contributing to help those in treatment for cancer to purchase prosthesis supplies, personal Cancer recovery items, wigs, medical expenses, gas or groceries.
