Delivering Cancer Treatment, Precision and Compasion to the North Country
Canton-Potsdam Hospital and the Center for Cancer Care are dedicated to providing the most advanced treatments and the finest care to the North Country community. Equally important is the dissemination of information to help community members live happy and healthy lifestyles. It is for this reason that our staff and volunteers rigorously support the annual Healthy Living Festival and the Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life. Through these important initiatives, Canton-Potsdam Hospital and the Center for Cancer Care are improving the general health of our community members and keeping advanced cancer care close to home.
The Edward I. Moses - Walk / Run for Life
Founded in 1979, the Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life has been a leader in raising money for the local fight against cancer. Thanks to the sponsorship of local businesses they are able to reward participants with prizes, goodie bags and t-shirts while still keeping every dollar raised in St. Lawrence County. This event is the primary fundraiser for the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund which provides funding for programs that work to educate the community and help with the prevention, early detection and diagnosis of cancer for local residents. To date, the E.I. Moses Walk/Run for Life has raised nearly $1.5 MILLION, which has been distributed to local charities.
The St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund
In 2011, the fundraising committee responsible for the popular Edward I. Moses Walk/Run reorganized into the St. Lawrence Cancer Fund, with the intention of expanding efforts beyond a single annual event and encouraging greater ongoing support from the community. The mission remains the same though: they are and always will be dedicated to the local fight against cancer. The organization is made up of a group of volunteers and prides itself on the fact that ALL proceeds remain in St. Lawrence County to benefit our friends and neighbors. The need for these important programs increases daily.
Won't you join us on Sunday, April 24th, 2016 in support of the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund by participating in the Edward I. Moses – Walk/Run for Life and learn the latest developments in living a healthy lifestyle by attending the Healthy Living Festival. Both events are happening at the Appleton Arena on the St. Lawrence University campus in Canton, NY.
