Dear Friends and Patients,
Our practice group is dedicated to using tools that work to create real change in your child’s health, school performance and emotional mastery; and to improve family harmony. Part of developing initiatives such as family and school successes is involvement in activities in which children learn that they can not only become part of a larger community, but change makers in their community and in the world community.
Once again this year, Advanced Pediatrics is supporting The Race. This event is a one mile walk/run and a 5K run, charity event that empowers children and their families to make a difference in the lives of those touched by breast cancer by raising awareness and money for breast cancer research.
Fifteen years ago Advanced Pediatrics patients Josh and Danielle Berns had the idea for The Race to help a close friend’s mother who was entrenched in a courageous battle with breast cancer. It was their way to demonstrate to young people that all of us can be agents of change when we work together for a cure.
Now in its fifteenth year, The Race continues its mission in supporting research that will contribute to early detection, advancing treatment options for breast cancer patients, and ultimately increasing the rate of survival of breast cancer patients.
Since its inception, The Race has raised over $1 million dollars for the cause and this year is dedicated to continuing these efforts. On Mother’s Day morning, May 13th, at Legacy Village in Lyndhurst, kids and their families will once again join together to participate in The Race and in the fight to eradicate breast cancer.
We would be grateful if your family would consider participating in The Race. Unique to this charity is that every dollar raised goes directly to breast cancer research and awareness at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center.
