Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union Joins Lowell General Hospital’s TeamWalk For Cancer Care
Nearly 70 friends, family members and employees of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union stepped out on Sunday, May 21, 2017 to support Lowell General Hospital’s 18th Annual The TeamWalk for Cancer Care.
The TeamWalk funds help Lowell General Hospital’s Cancer Care Center pay for medication, nutritional supplements, nursing visits and other services that help those in our community living with all types of cancer. Through fundraising efforts and a corporate donation, the Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union team raised more than $13,000 for the event.
So far, Lowell General Hospital’s The TeamWalk has raised a record-breaking $920,000, with more donations still pouring in. Lowell General has set a goal to raise $1 million by September 30th.
“We are always excited to come together in support of our friends at Lowell General Hospital,” says Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “They do amazing work each and every day to help people within our local community fight against cancer. The The TeamWalk for Cancer Care continues to be an incredible community event and we are proud to participate,” he added.
The TeamWalk began at the Tsongas Center. Walkers could participate in the 6.2 mile or 3 mile walk. While some Jeanne D’Arc employees trekked around the City of Lowell, others stayed back at the Credit Union headquarters to hand out bananas to walkers.
