A little about our 5K…
Nicole Podkowa was the wife of Southcoast Health primary care physician, Dr. John Podkowa. Nicole passed away in May 2016 of breast cancer and left behind her husband and two young boys.
As a way of honoring her memory and kind spirit, Dr. Podkowa has asked us to support him in this new endeavor, the first ever 5K run/walk, with all proceeds to benefit the Nicole Podkowa Patient Family & Caregiver Fund to assist Southcoast Health Cancer Center patients and families.
If you took part in the Nicole Podkowa 5K, our friends at Coolrunning.com provided us with the times of participants.
