Official Charity Beneficiary
Funds raised through the Cigna/Elliot Corporate Road Race will support the expansion of the Elliot Regional Cancer Center. This capital project and cancer program expansion will bring nearly all services and treatments into a convenient single location here in Manchester, unlike any other facility in southern New Hampshire. We are also initiating a unique “Patient and Family Navigator Program” to guide patients and their families through the entire cancer care journey, as well as introduce infusion services into our new center slated to open in the Fall of 2020. Together, we ensure Hope is Here.
As you register for the race, you will be emailed a link to a pre-loaded and personalized fundraising page, and will become eligible for some great fundraising prizes. You can share why supporting expanded cancer care locally is important to you, and you can share your personal fundraising page with friends, co-workers and family members. Be sure to also post your link on social media to encourage your friends to support the race, and our work to further improve cancer care for our community. You may also modify this page with photos, your own story, personal goals, and more.
All contributions will be managed by the Mary & John Elliot Charitable Foundation, a charitable, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing financial support to the various needs of the local community and of the Elliot Health System. 100% of the net proceeds received by the Foundation will be directed to supporting the new Elliot Regional Cancer Center.
