I am running in the Hollywood 10k and fundraising for the Samaritans Offering Support organization in loving memory of my mother, Chanita Smith Williams, who passed away from cancer in Feb 2010.
This organization Samaritans Offering Support (SOS) is a public 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping alleviate catastrophic medical expenses for all Americans. Recognizing that many families fall through the healthcare & financial aid cracks, we strive not only to create awareness of this growing issue but also to help those families who desperately need it. Founded in 2007, the mission of Samaritans Offering Support is to assist families by alleviating the cost of their current health care needs, and to identify other resources available through effective organizational partners and programs.
