Meade District Hospital Hosts 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness 5K

On Sunday, October 21, 2018 Meade District Hospital hosted their 2nd Annual 5K for Breast Cancer Awareness. The event was designated as a Fun Run/Walk/Team Effort to encourage all ages and athletic abilities to participate. And that sure proved true as all ages joined in the event!

The event was organized by LaDonna Trujillo, Mammography Supervisor and Imaging Technologist, with support from the MDH employee association. Event proceeds will contribute to the purchase of new digital mammography equipment. LaDonna was delighted with this year’s event and shared “The turnout was terrific! We tripled our registrations from last year, it’s exciting to see the support for this!”

Meade District Hospital would like to say THANK YOU to:
Everyone who supported and participated in the event!
