CareSouth Carolina presented a $1,500 check Monday to the CareFIRST Carolina Foundation as part of the proceeds from the Run2Care 5K event held in 2019.
More than 140 runners and walkers participated in the event, which was held in downtown Hartsville.
All proceeds from the 5K went to the CareFIRST Carolina foundation and will be directed toward two basic categories: improving access to care for those in need and improving the health of people in care.
“We want to thank Ann Lewis and the team at CareSouth Carolina Inc. for hosting this 5K Run 2 Care,” CareFIRST Carolina Foundation Mark Sobiski said. “The dollars raised by this community event go back to the community in better access to healthcare for CSC patients in critical medical needs.”
CareFIRST Carolina is an independent supporting foundation dedicated to financially supporting the mission of CareSouth Carolina. It is the first regional foundation to focus on improving the access and the quality of primary health care in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina.
“We are proud to accept this investment in our communities’ better health,” CareFIRST Carolina President Charlie Gray said. “CareSouth Carolina Inc. is consistently a national leader in improving access to care. Thank you so much for all the work of the staff and volunteers that made this event a reality.”
