Breast cancer fundraiser reaches new heights

Thanks to widespread community support, the Fork in the Road Restaurants’ annual “Boot Out Cancer” fundraising program to benefit YRMC’s BreastCare Center raised $30,670. This remarkable achievement marks an 18-year partnership to help the underserved in our community receive breast wellness services.
Throughout the month of October, area Taco Bell and Pizza Hut restaurants, together with Gurley Street Grill, Murphy’s, and The Office, invited their patrons to lend their support to the battle against breast cancer. The hundreds who did signed their name to pink “Boot Out Cancer” boots that adorned the walls in these restaurants throughout our community.
“We are so grateful for the partnership we have enjoyed with the Fork in the Road organization these past 18 years. We are equally grateful for our community’s outpouring of support for our BreastCare Center,” said Dave Barrett, chairman of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center Foundation. “Community members value the fact that 100 percent of their donations stay in our community to help battle this disease and recognize we are fortunate to have such a high quality program.”
Funds donated to YRMC’s BreastCare Center are used to provide screening mammograms for those who do not have the ability to pay, to help ensure the Center has the latest medical technology, and pay for professional education and training and community outreach.
