The Mother Hens (a group of a dozen or so women who like to walk…and talk…and gawk) was formed last year for the Care4 Race. Over the 10 day span of the race, we enjoyed almost daily walks at different parks around the county. We enjoyed getting to know each other (some made new friends) and experiencing the varied natural beauty of our surroundings. We also enjoyed supporting a very good cause…the Family Health Partnership Clinic. I fact, we so enjoyed the experience, we are looking to reprise the experience this year!
The Care4 Race supports a cause that is very important to me- making sure that the uninsured men and women of McHenry County have access to breast cancer screenings, early diagnosis & treatment, education & other women's health services. Early diagnosis is key to survival and without health insurance, early detection may not happen. Uninsured women were nearly 2.6 times more likely to be diagnosed with a later stage of the disease. With your support, we can change that and give everyone access to quality health care!
The Care4 Breast Cancer 5K is celebrating its 21st year of raising critical funds for Family Health Partnership Clinic. FHPC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing quality health care to the uninsured men and women of McHenry County. All of the proceeds from the Care4 race benefit FHPC and stay right here, in McHenry County, to take care of our neighbors in need.
