JSC takes part in two major fundraisers

walkjscAt Jefferson Surgical Clinic, our staff is dedicated to helping people maintain healthy, happy lifestyles. This commitment goes well beyond the time our staff is working with patients at JSC.

In September, many members of our staff took part in two major fundraisers in Roanoke – Cure by Design and One Walk. Combined, the two events raised an estimated $450,000 for cancer research and funding juvenile diabetes research.

Cure by Design

On Saturday, Sept. 23, members of Jefferson Surgical Clinic took part in the American Cancer Society’s Cure by Design Gala at Hotel Roanoke. The event featured a fashion show and auction to raise funds for cancer research.

The event featured a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and a runway show. All the models who took part in the runway show were cancer survivors.

The event raised more than $200,000 for cancer research. To date, the event has raised more than $900,000 over the past five years.

One Walk

On Sunday, Sept. 24, staff members joined hundreds of others for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s One Walk, an event that raises funds for type 1 diabetes research.

Roughly 40,000 people are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes – commonly known as juvenile diabetes – each year.

This year’s event raised an estimated $250,000.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in these two events. Your commitment to these types of fundraisers, as well as the services you provide patients each day at work, are a huge contributor to the health and well-being of Roanoke-area residents.
