Thank you from Premier Cares Foundation!
 
Thank you to all the walkers, volunteers, teams, sponsors, and vendors for helping to make the 2017 8th Annual Premier Cares Foundation’s Prostate Cancer Walk such a successful and meaningful event!  We were thrilled to have over 400 people and many dogs participate in this gorgeous fall morning. The sun was shining, the views from the Walkway Over the Hudson were breathtaking, and the Amerscot Highland Pipe Band played magnificently as they led our walkers across the bridge.  The National Anthem was performed beautifully by local resident and opera singer Alexandra Hoffman.
 
The Walk raised over $77,000 to help Hudson Valley patients, with financial challenges, who are battling prostate cancer and other urological and gastrointestinal diseases.  Walkers enjoyed a bountiful array of refreshments all donated by local vendors, as well as had opportunities to try their hand with the daVinci robot, interact with multiple pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies, and mingle with family and friends.  In addition,  physicians were on hand to provide information and educational materials about prostate cancer.  Prostate Cancer survivor, Karl Holmstrom, spoke during the speaker’s program about his journey from diagnosis to recovery, and emphasized the importance of getting screened early, even if no symptoms are present.
 
The funds raised at our Walk will translate to tangible assistance for patients to receive right away.  Our “Care” Fund helps with items such as transportation to and from medical appointments, medications, utilities, and other supportive services.  You were all an important link in the chain in helping patients receive the assistance they
 so deserve.
We truly appreciate all your support with our efforts. With your help and enthusiasm, this year’s Walk is one that we will always remember!

Be a supporter of this important cause!

Prostate cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer, if detected in the early stages. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Over 200,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year alone. Premier Medical Group founded Premier Cares Foundation to help provide support, awareness, education, and treatment to those individuals in the community with urologic and digestive diseases. 

Money raised by the Walk supports local charities and prostate programs to offer free screenings and other supportive services. Come walk in honor or in memory of a loved one.
