— The Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce re­cently con­trib­uted $1,500 to the Ce­cil Col­lege Foun­da­tion in sup­port of the Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce Health­care Schol­ar­ship.

Es­tab­lished in 2015, the schol­ar­ship was de­signed to help stu­dents pur­su­ing a health­care de­gree or certificate at Ce­cil to achieve their goals of en­ter­ing the med­i­cal field. The Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce Health­care Schol­ar­ship is fully funded by the Ris­ing Sun Health Fair, which is run by a com­mit­tee of sev­eral cham­ber mem­bers and co­or­di­nated by Stone Run Fam­ily Medicine in Ris­ing Sun. Since the profit from the an-

nual event comes solely from ven­dors in the med­i­cal field, the cham­ber felt that sup­port­ing health­care stu­dents was a nat­u­ral fit.

The mis­sion of the Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce is to pro­mote com­mer­cial and busi­ness pros­per­ity in Ris­ing Sun and its sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties and to pro­mote growth and de­vel­op­ment of busi­ness and pro­fes­sional ser­vices, both large and small, with re­spect to im­prov­ing both com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial con­di­tions. Thanks to its fundraising events, schol­ar­ships are able to be cre­ated and funded.

The 10th an­nual Ris­ing Sun Health Fair will be held from 8 a. m. to 2 p. m. Oct. 21, at Grace Bi­ble Chapel. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www. rshealth­fair. com.
