Soroptimist International of Chelan is proud to present the Chelan Chase, a USATF course-certified 5K Race/Run/Walk in Chelan, Washington, with proceeds equally benefiting the Lake Chelan Community Hospital Mammography Department and the Wellness Place.
Lake Chelan Community Hospital.
The Chelan Chase donates a percentage
of its proceeds to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital (LCCH) Mammography Department to provide for screening mammograms and the reading services for that mammogram at no personal cost to all individuals who are uninsured or under-insured.
Wellness Place. Proceeds are also allotted for Wellness Place, a nonprofit that provides support to cancer patients from NorthCentral Washington. Their services include free wigs, head coverings, nutritional supplements, compression glove/sleeve assistance, pre-scription assistance, lodging & travel assistance, fitness classes, and support groups. They strive to meet the needs of all cancer patients. If you are a cancer patient and have a need that is not currently being met, Wellness Place will work hard to accommodate your request.
Soroptimist International of Chelan - Soroptimist is an international volunteer service organization for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, both locally and globally. Some of SI Chelan’s many community projects include providing college education scholarships for local students and those seeking continuing education. SI Chelan sponsors the Chelan Chase, our largest fundraiser.
“At our monthly Chelan Valley Cancer Support Group lunch at the Lake Chelan Community Hospital, gals presented a banner that was used at a fundraiser for the Wenatchee Wellness Place at the November 8, 2014 Wenatchee Wild Hockey game. The support group is open to women affected by cancer, being a survivor, relative, friend, or caregiver of a cancer patient.”
