Reminder...Cures for the Colors Color Run Is Back
Southeastern Cancer Care is holding its annual Cures for the Colors Run in September to raise money to help cancer patients in Eastern North Carolina.
Southeastern Cancer Care will present its annual Cures for the Colors Color Run on Saturday, September 10th, at Wayne Community College at 9:00 AM. Participants can sign up for a 5K or one-mile fun run and will be blasted with color on both courses to show support for all types of cancer. All proceeds from the race will help provide basic living essentials for cancer patients living in Wayne County and the greater Eastern North Carolina area. This is the first Cures for the Colors race since the Covid-19 pandemic limited in-person events.

Dr. Samer Kasbari, a long-time advocate and supporter of Southeastern Cancer Care, said, " I have seen firsthand how many people in Wayne County have been personally impacted by a cancer diagnosis. The 2022 Cures for the Colors Color Run is a great opportunity for all those in the community to show their support for friends, family, and those in the greater community battling cancer and to raise money to assist those same people. I think this is going to be one of our most successful races to date, and I can't think of a more worthy cause to support than Southeastern Cancer Care. "
Southeastern Cancer Care was founded in 2011 by the doctors at Southeastern Medical Oncology. The doctors saw firsthand the need to support cancer patients financially as they battled their cancer diagnosis. Southeastern Cancer Care is a 501 C 3 organization dedicated to providing basic living essentials to patients with an active cancer diagnosis. Available assistance includes gas cards, grocery cards, and help with utility bills and oncology prescriptions.
100% of the funds raised go directly to cancer patients and their families. Southeastern Cancer Care runs completely off monetary donations and volunteers’ time and resources. To date, in 2022, 105 patients have been approved for $96,812 in financial assistance.
