For the seventh consecutive year, NEVHC’s employees, their family and friends will join TEAM NEVHC at the Santa Clarita Marathon to run, walk and raise much needed funds for our Asthma patients on Saturday, November 3rd.
Asthma and allergies strike one out of four Americans and remains a serious and costly health issues, both directly (emergency visits and hospitalization) and indirectly (missed school and work days). For children, asthma is the number one cause of sick days away from school and in adults there are currently no available grants or programs to fund asthma prevention programs meaning that low-income adults and children bear the greatest burden of the disease. NEVHC seeks to make a difference in improving health outcomes, but to achieve this, health care must extend beyond the walls of the community health center to include the support of community leaders like you.
Last year, our 135-member team of runners, walkers and volunteers raised $32,944 to help support patient programs and services for the community. This year, our goal is to raise $35,000 to serve an additional 300 new asthma patients with the education, outreach and health services they need to improve their quality of life. Please join me and Team NEVHC and make a difference for individuals and families living with asthma because health knows no finish line!
