October 2021

As we lead our community through the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our patients, employees and community remains our top priority. For this reason, Southcoast Health’s 2021 Nicole Podkowa 5k Walk/Run will be held as a virtual event. Although we will miss seeing everyone in person, we can all still come together in support of a great cause!


Proceeds raised through this event will support the Nicole Podkowa Cancer Patient and Caregiver’s Assistance Fund. This unique fund supports patients being treated at the Southcoast Health Cancer Centers and their families who are in need of financial assistance to help with utility payments, food, housing, transportation, cancer related supplies and other necessities.

How to Participate in the Virtual 5K:

Unlike a traditional race, this Virtual 5K takes place where you are and when you want! Run or walk your 5K anytime between the time you register and Sunday, October 31, 2021 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Join us on Facebook for a special kick-off message from Southcoast on Friday, October 1st at 4pm (EST)!
