Hello my Plunge buddies,
I know it’s hard to believe, but Saturday, March 2, 2019, will be the 17th annual Jordan Hospital Club Polar Plunge! And though a few years have passed and a few things have changed – the most important aspect of this fundraiser is exactly the same – the money raised by you and your donors and sponsors still benefits the JHC Cancer Center at BID-Plymouth.
Over the past 16 years that amount has totaled more than $1.2 Million, which has helped to fund everything from smart IV pumps to the renovation of the Chemotherapy room to educational programs for staff.
This year’s proceeds will help to purchase new equipment for an IT upgrade for the Cancer Center as well as support the Patients’ Assistance Fund. This Fund is designed to help meet any special or unexpected financial needs of the patient not covered by insurance – e.g., transportation, childcare, prescriptions, home heating fuel, etc., with the goal of helping to alleviate some financial pressures so that the patient can focus on their therapy and healing.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Nelson’s Beach on March 2!
