Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) has once again been selected by the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) to be the only Long Island hospital beneficiary of the Saturday, May 2, Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Manhattan. The funds received by NUMC will be used to help under-served women who obtain NUMC's National Mah Jongg League Foundation Breast Center services to navigate the healthcare system.
The patient navigator system guides patients with cancer through bilingual services to the many treatment options available to them. Since 1999, NUMC has received a total of $801,659 from the EIF, including $80,000 received for participation in the 2008 Revlon Run/Walk to help battle breast cancer.
NUMC is presently forming teams to join us as we participate in the May 2 Revlon Run/Walk for Women, starting at New York City's Times Square at 8:30 a.m. and ending at Central Park, near 96th Street, mid-morning. It is a healthy and fun way to show your support in the fight against women's cancers.
If you wish to join NUMC's Team #12 for the Revlon Run/Walk for Women, registration is available online at www.revlonrunwalk.com/ny. For additional information, call NUMC's Public Affairs Department at 572-6055.
