Good News Clinics has received a grant of $29,416.56 from It’s The Journey, producer of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.
The grant will fund the Breast Disease Prevention and Treatment Program. The grant is one of 27 grants awarded by It’s The Journey this year to breast cancer programs across Georgia.
“Funding from It’s The Journey enables Good News Clinics to offer screening mammograms to our patients who would not have access to them otherwise,” said Charlotte Crow, development director for Good News Clinics. “This screening is extremely important in prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer.”
“We are privileged to facilitate the increased reach of these incredibly impactful breast health organizations,” said Kimberly Goff, executive director of It’s The Journey.
It’s The Journey, Inc. produces the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, an annual endurance walk that raises funds for breast health and breast cancer programs in Georgia. In 14 years, It’s The Journey has raised $13 million and funded 298 breast cancer and breast health programs in Georgia. Additional grants for breast cancer research will be awarded at the 2017 Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, which is set for Nov. 11-12. To register for the walk, go to www.2daywalk.org.
All of the money raised at the walk stays in Georgia.
