7th Annual Run for the Ribbons held at Lynn Cancer Institute

by Robert S Weinroth

The Boca Raton Florida Regional Hospital’s Lynn Cancer Institute was the site of the 7th Annual Run for the Ribbons 5k Run and 1 mile Run/Walk, held to coincide with National Cancer Survivor Day®.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual, Celebration, held in hundreds of communities nationwide, and around the world, on the first Sunday in June. It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community.

On National Cancer Survivors Day®, thousands gather across the globe to honor cancer survivors and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and even inspiring.

It is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional.

This day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 15.5 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.

It is also a day to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship in order to promote more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.

A great turnout by our community to support this worthy cause.  Special thanks to all the volunteers!
