Funds raised from Impact the Cure are designated to support breast cancer services to include free mammography services for uninsured in Dickinson County.
A mammogram is a series of X-ray images of breast tissue. It is a valuable screening that can detect breast cancer early, before a suspicious lump can be felt. Memorial Hospital uses digital mammography. The mammography services at Memorial Hospital are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Mammography services are provided by Memorial Hospital’s Imaging and Radiology Department, 511 NE 10th Street, in Abilene.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Memorial Hospital at (785) 263-6660. Ask about the free mammography program.
Bring your wiener dog, open to miniature dachshunds and ALL small dog breeds (15 pounds and under), to add to the fun of the day and support the fight for breast cancer. This event is fun for all to watch and will be held after the run/walk and before the awards presentation.
It will be nothing too serious and for entertainment purposes. A small entry fee of $5 to enter your dog will go directly to Impact the Cure. The overall “wiener” will get a small prize and every participant will receive a ribbon with the first 20 doges registered also receiving a shirt. The “track” will be from east to west through the Impact Sports & Fitness parking lot.
Look for the booth–children can get a little face art done free of charge!
Cancer survivors are recognized as a group prior to the run/walk.
Can’t participate, but want to help a good cause? Pre-register to be a “couch potato” and receive an Impact the Cure t-shirt!
