Chelan Chase 2017-October 21, 2017
Soroptimist International of Chelan is proud to present the Chelan Chase, a USATF course-certified 5K Race/Run/Walk in Chelan, Washington, with proceeds equally benefiting the Lake Chelan Community Hospital Mammography Department and the Wellness Place.
Lake Chelan Community Hospital. The Chelan Chase donates a percentage of its proceeds to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital (LCCH) Mammography Department to provide for screening mammograms and the reading services for that mammogram at no personal cost to all individuals who are uninsured or under-insured.
Wellness Place. Proceeds are also allotted for Wellness Place, a nonprofit that provides support to cancer patients from NorthCentral Washington. Their services include free wigs, head coverings, nutritional supplements, compression glove/sleeve assistance, pre-scription assistance, lodging & travel assistance, fitness classes, and support groups. They strive to meet the needs of all cancer patients. If you are a cancer patient and have a need that is not currently being met, Wellness Place will work hard to accommodate your request.
