The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute is pleased to announce the Judi H Rock On 5 planning committee raised $20,465 (gross) from this year’s event. The dance party/fundraiser was held on September 27, 2015, at the St. Mary’s Center.
The Judi H planning committee is made up of a group of friends and family of a woman from Dunmore, Judi Hartridge, who died from breast cancer in 2007. To honor her memory, family and friends formed a committee- Judi H Rock On, to raise funds to fight the disease that claimed her life.
The group has raised more than $200,000 over the past five years which includes matching funds. Proceeds from the event support NRCI’s Patient Navigation Program, which helps low income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals in northeast Pennsylvania receive their recommended breast, cervical, and colon cancer screenings.
