It certainly does not seem like eight years! Wow! Think of the number of lives in our community touched through the efforts and generosity of all who support the Foundation and their annual events, not to mention the countless hours that go into the organization of not only the events, but the outreach to the community, as well.
Here we are, right before the Walk began. Starting on your left we have Gia McCormack, Associate Director of Fundraisers and Events; Monica Metty, Foundation Board Member and volunteer; and Julie Goldfischer, Executive Director of the Foundation.
This is Dr. Evan Goldfischer who gave the opening remarks, inspiring all the eager walkers just before they set out across the Walkway Over the Hudson (great view Saturday!).
Again this year, members of the Amerscot Highland Pipe Band led the merry walkers on their way. Gotta be in pretty good shape to lug, blow and walk all at the same time! I have a new level of respect!
Some of you may not be familiar with the Premier Cares Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to provide support, education, awareness and treatment to those in our community lacking sufficient funds to address significant urologic and digestive issues, including but not limited to prostate and colon cancer.
Lives being saved here! Thank you everyone! Find out more about the Foundation and see more pictures of Saturday's Walk here.
