Partners in the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run presented a check for more than $24,000 to The Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion at St. Joseph’s/Candler, the official charity of the Bridge Run, from proceeds of the 2016 race.
Partners in the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run include Enmarket, Alpha Media‘s BOB 106.9, St. Joseph’s/Candler Foundations and the Savannah Sports Council. Alpha Media participated in the fundraising effort by collecting $10 donations from morning show listeners to have the name of someone touched by breast cancer tattooed on show hosts’ bodies with henna ink before they ran the December 3 race.
The Lewis Cancer Pavillion at St. Joseph’s/Candler is home to a team of highly-trained cancer specialists who use high-impact technological screening and treatment options for optimal results. The Pavilion was named in honor of the generous support provided by Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis, one of Savannah’s most philanthropic families.
