Congratulations to all our runners and walkers! Our First Annual 5k Run for Health was a huge success, raising more than $6,000 to care for our low income, uninsured friends and neighbors in the Greater Chattanooga area. These funds represent 71 patient visits valued at $23,817 at office visit cost and $119,086 at conservative emergency costs. Thank you to Underwriters SunTrust Bank and EMJ Corporation; Platinum Sponsors Hawks Property Management, Hospice of Chattanooga, Massey & Associates, and Ridgedale Baptist Church; and Gold Sponsors Nancy & Richard Franks and Miller & Martin. We can't wait to do this again!
