BENEFITING: UNITED FOUNDATION FOR CHINA'S HEALTH
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2014
￼Participating in the 2014 Beijing Marathon as a member of the UFCH Run for Hope Team means that you will be helping to raise funds for charity which will support the United Foundation for China’s Health launch its Wheels for Life community health van in 2015. The Wheels for Life van will enable the Foundation to extend its reach directly to the communities it serves in Beijing, providing much needed health screenings for migrant workers and underserved adults without local health benefits as well as provide onsite health checks for orphans and poor families. Health screenings will include breast and cervical cancer screenings; hypertension; diabetes; and management of chronic illness. Healthcare education will be provided at each location on a rotational schedule.
Wheels for Life will launch in March 2015 and service nearly 5000 patient visits including 1600 breast screenings.
Your support fundraising during the marathon will help thousands to receive the care they need in a pleasant, clean and expert environment reducing the need for emergency care.
