The Calvert Recorder - - Front Page -

The ninth an­nual CalvertHealth Breast Can­cer 5K Run/Walk held Oct. 6 in Solomons raised more than $41,500 to­ward the Shel­don E. Gold­berg Cen­ter for Breast Care.

“The 5K par­tic­i­pants lit up Solomons,” Foun­da­tion Board Trustee Ra­mona Crow­ley Gold­berg said in a press re­lease. “I felt so touched by the hun­dreds who formed a very vis­i­ble bond of ca­ma­raderie to sup­port our cen­ter for breast care.” More than 700 run­ners, walk­ers and can­cer sur­vivors and sup­ports took part in the fundraiser.

Fe­male win­ners in­cluded Alex Szkot­nick (over­all), Cara Trickle (10U), Tori Mcan­ney (11-19), Va­lerie Mey­ers (20-29), Lisa McGin­nis-Buckle (30-39), An­gela Ben­nett (40-49), Kelly Hay­din (50-59), Susan Buckalew (60-69) and Pa­tri­cia Schroeder (70-plus). The win­ners of the men’s com­pe­ti­tion were Turner Chaundy (over­all male), Claran Sweeney (10U), Wil Ehrmantraut (1119), Mike Bara­nowski (2029), Zach Hol­lenger (30-39), Chad Holdsworth (40-49), Michael La­some (50-59), Steve Ru­pard (60-69) and John Steiner (70-plus).

“I know the event is a spe­cial time to pay trib­ute to my late hus­band, Dr. Shel­don Gold­berg,” Crow­ley Gold­berg said. “But even fur­ther, it’s a time to re­mem­ber breast can­cer sur­vivors, pa­tients, and those who have lost their bat­tle. Our com­mu­nity’s con­tin­u­ing sup­port is amaz­ing, and I am so very thank­ful to all who par­tic­i­pated.” Dr. Shel­don E. Gold­berg helped bring com­pre­hen­sive breast care to Calvert County more than nine years ago. To­day, the breast cen­ter re­mains true to its vi­sion and CalvertHealth is proud to be the first in South­ern Mary­land to pro­vide a cen­ter with co­or­di­nated care.

“This year’s event was widely sup­ported by the com­mu­nity,” Pres­i­dent and CEO Dean Teague said in the re­lease. “We want to thank the Solomons Volun- teer Fire De­part­ment and our Sher­iff’s Of­fice. The ded­i­ca­tion and sup­port that our com­mu­nity of­fers to help us make a dif­fer­ence in ev­ery life we touch is ex­traor­di­nary. This event would not have been pos­si­ble with­out ev­ery­one’s sup­port and in­volve­ment.”

This year’s spon­sors and sup­port­ers were A&W In­sur­ance; Amer­i­can Ra­di­ol­ogy Ser­vices; Costco Whole­sale; Davis, Up­ton & Palumbo; Em­pire Graph­ics; Ex­elon Gen­er­a­tion; Glas­cock fam­ily; Mary­land Trust Ti­tle & Escrow; McKay’s Fine Foods; Na­tional Ink & Stitch; Ra­mona Crow­ley Gold­berg; RE/MAX One; Sneade’s Ace Home Cen­ter; South­ern Mary­land Oral & Max­illo­fa­cial Surgery; and World Gym.

Other sup­port­ers in­cluded Our Lady Star of the Sea School, the Boy Scouts, Amer­i­can Girls Her­itage So­ci­ety, Wil­low Point Quil­ters of Calvert Quilt Shop, the North­ern High School POMS squad and the Patux­ent High School cheer­lead­ers.
