Whether you are a new member to the Cochlear Implant Center @ GBMC or a longtime CI “family member”, you know that we love to support one another. This is why we are reaching out to you today. On September 24th, GBMC will host the 16th annual Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs. Set in in Maryland’s picturesque horse country, Legacy Chase is GBMC’s signature event benefiting its oncology services and patient support programs. For more information check out http://legacychase.org/ .
We all have had cancer touch our lives in one way or another so we thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to make a difference as a team. GBMC is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest awareness ribbon – right in the infield of Shawan Downs! Stretching a mile and a half long, the lavender ribbon is a symbol of GBMC’s commitment to the fight against all cancers. We are excited to say that this year we have created team “COCHLEAR CONNECTION” to show our support by being a part of the longest awareness ribbon.
There are many opportunities to support this worthy cause. Take a look below and find something that works for you!
