The DONNA Foundation Honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Community Event

Advocacy Groups | <b>The DONNA Foundation</b>

The DONNA Foundation is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a free community celebration event at the Foundation’s warehouse.

WHAT:

The DONNA Foundation is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a free community celebration event at the Foundation’s warehouse. The event marks the kick-off of the DONNA Half Marathon Training with the Jacksonville Galloway Training Program. The three-mile run will be followed by a warehouse sale with deeply discounted DONNA Foundation merchandise, and an opportunity for runners and the public to donate blood with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers.

Transfusions of blood products are often needed during cancer treatment, making this timely collaboration necessary. All donors will receive a limited-edition Breast Cancer Awareness Month T-shirt* and a $10 gift card as a thank you. 

LifeSouth is the primary provider of blood to approximately 70 percent of all hospital beds across Northeast Florida, supplying local hospitals such as Baptist Medical Center Beaches, Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, Baptist Medical Center Nassau, Baptist Medical Center South, Memorial Hospital, Orange Park Medical Center, UF Health Jacksonville, UF Health North and Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Runners of all levels are welcome; registration is not required for this Galloway training run. To donate blood, appointments are not required, but suggested. To make an appointment, visit donors.lifesouth.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/734629.

Registration for the 2022 DONNA Marathon Weekend is open. For more information and to register, visit breastcancermarathon.com/.
