June 29, 2015 (Drexel Hill, Pa.) – Eagle National Bank and Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) are partners for the 24th straight year as they make plans to host their highly successful 5K Walk/Run to Fight Cancer. This year’s event is Saturday, September 26 and it will once again benefit the Delaware County Regional Cancer Center. Registration is from 8:30-9:45 a.m. at DCMH (501 N. Lansdowne Avenue, Drexel Hill), and the run starts at 10 a.m. and the walk starts at 10:01 a.m., rain or shine.
Over the 24-year relationship fighting cancer together, Eagle National Bank and DCMH have raised over $550,000 dollars through this event that annually has as much spirit and excitement as any local fundraising Walk/Run.
In addition to the Walk/Run, the community is invited to attend the health and wellness fair from 9 a.m. to noon on September 26 at Delaware County Memorial Hospital. The health fair includes fun activities for the entire family, including: free health screenings, free health information, free children’s activities, flu shots, walk-in mammograms (bring your insurance information, call (610) 284-8158 if you are uninsured), refreshments and giveaways while supplies last. Marie DeStefano, senior administrative director of Oncology, Crozer-Keystone, comments, “Our Delaware County Regional Cancer Center is so appreciative of Eagle National Bank and all of the individuals, teams and families that choose to support our fun event. We look forward to another great experience this September.”
