Bethany Beach Breast Cancer 5K donates $10K to Tunnell center

January 23, 2019

Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center recently received a check for $10,000 from the 2018 Bethany Beach Breast Cancer 5K Fun Run and 3K Walk.

Anne Raskauskas and Ed Burke presented the check to Beebe Medical Foundation at the Tunnell Cancer Center in memory of Ed’s wife, Elizabeth “Liz” Glacken Burke, who was one of the event organizers. Proceeds from this annual event support the Breast Health Program at Tunnell Cancer Center which helps women receive mammograms and follow-up care.

“We are proud to partner with great events such as the Bethany Beach Breast Cancer 5K,” said Judy Aliquo, Beebe Medical Foundation president and CEO. “What a wonderful tribute to Liz, their friend and loved one. As we build a new South Coastal Cancer Center, the support from the community is critical. Thank you Anne, Ed, and all of the committee members for your generous support and for helping Beebe create the Next Generation of Care for our community.”

Beebe Medical Foundation is currently raising funds through its I Believe in Beebe campaign, which will help support the construction of the South Coastal Health Campus. The new campus near Millville will include a second cancer center and a freestanding emergency department. For more information, go to www.nextgenerationofcare.org.
