Team Walk for Cancer Care

Support TeamWalk for CancerCare on May 16, 2010.

There are a number of ways you can support TeamWalk for CancerCare even if you can’t participate in the walk

Lowell General Hospital’s annual TeamWalk for CancerCare fundraising event will be held in less than two weeks (May 16, 2010), but there are still ways in which you can support this great effort! In fact, you can support the effort by doing some of the things that you would normally do anyway!

Applebee’s Coupon ~ Dine at Applebee’s in Tewksbury or Chelmsford on May 4th or May 11th and 20% of your bill will be donated to TeamWalk. Simply print out the coupon on the Lowell General Hospital website and present to your server.

Modell’s Coupon ~ Receive 15% off your total purchase of regular or sale priced merchandise during the Team Weeks promotion period: May 7, 2010 thru June 3, 2010. Please print and bring the coupon on the Lowell General Hospital website.

TeamWalk Store ~ Please visit the on-line store and shop for TeamWalk merchandise. They have some great new things, even something for the dog! Merchandise will also be available at pre-registration and on event day.

Body Destinations ~ Invites you to “Treat your Feet”. Enjoy $15.00 off a one hour foot reflexology session (reg. $75.00 hour). Please print out the coupon on the Lowell General Hospital website and call 978-649-8900 ext 4 for an appointment.

Bone Marrow Registry ~ DKMS America will be at TeamWalk again this year. Please help save a life by joining the bone marrow registry. It’s only a simple one page application and two cotton swabs to join the registry and if one is blessed, they may someday be a life saving match.  Review flyer on the Lowell General website for further information.

Volunteer ~ It is impossible to count the number of cancer patients and their families who have been or will be helped by the proceeds of this huge community-wide event over the years. Everyone who participates in the walk, whether by walking, making donations or volunteering, can be very proud to be part of the team. If you have any questions, or if you know someone that would like to be part of the volunteer “red-shirt brigade,” please contact Linda Gaetano, Coordinator of Volunteers at (978) 937-6280.

The Health Information Management Department is donating all proceeds from a bracelet sale to LGH’s TeamWalk for CancerCare. Join in the fun of purchasing and sporting these bracelets to support a great cause. Prices are one for $2.00, or three for $5.00. Bracelets are available in five different colors to represent different types of cancer. The HIM department volunteers will be selling bracelets at TeamWalk registration in the Lowell General Hospital lobby on Friday, May 14th 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 15th 9:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. Bracelets will also be on sale during TeamWalk.

Ira Toyota of Tewksbury Gives Back ~ Simply go to Facebook by May 16th and ‘like” IRA Toyota. If IRA gets 1,000 new hits they will make a $2,500 donation to TeamWalk ~ it’s that simple!
