Over 800 attend The Link to support the fight against all cancers


November 2019

On Saturday, October 19th the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation hosted The Link – Partners in Pink, its 11th annual run/walk to raise awareness and funding for cancer screening and early detection. During the beautiful fall day, more than 800 people showed up at Whitney Commons Park wearing their pink and big smiles in support of this event and the fight against all cancers.

All funds raised will support screening and early detection of all types of cancer for patients at Sheridan Memorial Hospital. The event proceeds of around $60,000 will be available to patients through the hospital to help those who qualify, pay for their cancer screening.

“This event continues to evolve and is more than just a fundraiser,” according to Ada Kirven, Director of Donor Relations. “The Link has become an October tradition for our community. The power of a large group – all of us there for the same reason, to recognize loved ones and those in our lives who have been touched by cancer.” Kirven goes on to say “When someone is diagnosed with cancer, the daily life challenges can feel overwhelming – we want to support and encourage people.”

Kirven adds that when cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, when it isn’t too large and hasn’t spread, successful treatment is more likely, and in some cases a cure is possible. Community members are encouraged to see their provider if they have health concerns or questions and to follow recommended cancer screening guidelines. To find out more or to see if you qualify for screening funds through this program, please contact our Patient Financial Advocates at 307-675-4620.

The Link-Partners in Pink Committee thanks all those who participated, sponsored, made a donation and volunteered their time. Cancer education and prevention resources are now more accessible to our community, because of the impact of amazing and caring people.
