Donation to T.E.A.R. fund
A check for $11,800 from the eighth-annual Campbell-Dickinson and Noah Long Run Bike Walk recently was presented to the Tony Teramana Cancer Center’s T.E.A.R. Fund, which helps to provide emergency assistance for individuals diagnosed with cancer to lessen the burdens associated with cancer diagnosis and treatment. During the eight years of the run bike walk event, which is held in Toronto, more than $162,000 has been presented to the T.E.A.R. Fund. When combined with the proceeds from the St. Baldrick’s Shave Off, which is directed by Matt Lewis and the proceeds go to childhood cancer research, the combined total is nearly a quarter of a million dollars raised in the fight against cancer, according to organizers. Those taking part in the check presentation ceremony included, from left, Joe Edmiston, executive director of development at Trinity Health System; JoAnn Mulrooney, Trinity chief operations officer; Lynn Barbe, director of oncology services; Jennifer Dickinson, a cancer survivor; George Komar, president of the Toronto Coalition and race director; Patricia Campbell, wife of “Pat” Campbell for whom the event is named; Cindy Taylor of WCDK-FM; Jessica Haberly of WTOV-TV; and David Campbell, son of Pat and Patricia Campbell.
