MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (October 29, 2014) — In its continuing commitment to community service and raising awareness on important health and quality of life topics, Middletown Medical was proud to serve as a primary sponsor at this past weekend’s 19th Annual Tri-State 5K & 10K Classic in Port Jervis, one of the more popular running races in the Hudson Valley.
This year’s race also raised money for breast cancer research in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to its race sponsorship, Middletown Medical was on site handing out free goodies and educational literature, including information about its Hereditary Cancer Risk Testing program, the only provider in the region to offer such a service.
The 10K race (6.2 miles) is unique in that while it starts and finishes in New York, it also runs through New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Close to 500 competitors took part in the two races this year – a record number of participants.
Many Middletown Medical employees also competed in the day’s activities, with Family Nurse Practitioner Christine Quinlan (pictured with Radiology Supervisor Kelly Bradley) earning a medal for finishing third in her age group in the 5K.
