Andy Shatley, director of the St. Bernards Sports Medicine program, recently presented a check for $3,000 to Jane McDaniel of Jonesboro, past president of the Arkansas Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The gift represents proceeds from the third annual Arkansas Ride for the Cure sponsored by St. Bernards, Healthcare Medical Group, St. Bernards Sports Medicine and Gearhead Outfitters. It is held each year in conjunction with the HMG Health & Fitness Expo in Jonesboro.
This April nearly 200 cyclists took part in Arkansas Ride for the Cure, a recreational ride that includes 10-, 20- and 50-mile routes on roadways throughout Northeast Arkansas.
St. Bernards has had a lengthy association with the Arkansas Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure and supports that organization through a variety of programs and efforts. In turn, Komen has awarded St. Bernards a number of grants to provide education and breast health services to women of Northeast Arkansas.
