As a team member of Dermatology & Skin Health of Dover, it’s so satisfying when good things happen for a good cause. In this case, we’re happy to say that at press time, $23,348 has been raised for Team Running for Cover, http://dermskinhealth.com/running-for-cover, to help meet its $20,000 goal to benefit the Melanoma Foundation of New England. Yes! Team Running for Cover will be running the 118th Boston Marathon on April 21, and it will include the athletic strengths of one of our own.
If you haven’t been keeping track, DSH’s own physician’s assistant, Michelle Roy, is an important team member (of both DSH and Team Running for Cover). Catch up with her training and fundraising online at http://www.crowdrise.com/michelleroy.
DSH (which provides care and treatment for conditions of the skin, hair and nails), is extremely pleased to thank and acknowledge the following area businesses:
Eastern Propane, one of the premier propane distributors in the Northeast, serving New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut gave a $1,000 sponsorship. Strata DX Pathology Services, a leading anatomic pathology laboratory based in Lexington, Mass., also purchased a $1,000 sponsorship. Federal Savings Bank, a community bank with branches in Dover, Barrington, Durham, Portsmouth and Rochester, also donated $1,000 toward Team Running for Cover and the Melanoma Foundation of New England. Great Bay Promotions out of Lee also donated $1,000, as did Converge Diagnostic Services, with multiple offices, and Dover Auto World.
And let’s not forget Flynn Insurance of Dover, who came through for us with $500.
And last but not least, Boldwerks advertising agency, co-founded by Adam Kaufmann and Matthias Roberge, and based in Portsmouth also gave a $1,000 donation to the Melanoma Foundation of New England.
Thank you for reading along, and remember, sponsors are still being accepted to help us meet the $20,000. If you are interested in donating, please contact DSH at 742-5556. While we met our goal, the Melanoma Foundation of New England, still could use every little bit of help it can get for its cause, which is to reduce the incidence of melanoma in the New England region.
