Phelps County Regional Medical Center’s (PCRMC) 5th Annual Superhero 5K walk/fun run held June 10,  at Veterans Memorial Park in Rolla, raised more than $11,000 for local cancer patients.

Proceeds from this year’s Superhero 5K totaled $11,598.60, and PCRMC Administration and the Marketing and Public Relations Department recently presented a check for this amount to the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation.
This money will benefit the Foundation’s Joy of Caring Cancer Fund, which provides financial assistance for patients undergoing cancer treatments. This fund helps with prescription medications, wigs, food supplements, mastectomy bras and recovery supplies, rehabilitation and other needs, as identified.

“We could not do it without all the support we have within the community, and we are so grateful,” says Lorrie Hartley, executive director of the Foundation.

More than 220 runners and walkers of all ages took part in this year’s Superhero 5K, a family-friendly event where participants are encouraged to dress up as superheroes.

Over 30 businesses, organizations and PCRMC providers sponsored this year’s event. PCRMC would like to thank these sponsors for supporting such a great cause.
