Cass Community Health Foundation honors 5K top teams
Cass Community Health Foundation recently celebrated Belton Regional Medical Center and Cass County Dental Clinic as the top fundraising teams for its 23rd Annual 5K Walk/Run for Health.
CCHF hosted the Walk/Run for Health in May. It was the first year for the event to include a timed race. Hundreds of Cass County community members helped raise a net income of nearly $58,000.
Members of both the Belton Regional Medical Center and the Cass County Dental Clinic teams collected pledges to benefit CCHF programs, including the Cass County Dental Clinic in Belton and Harrisonville. Pledges also benefited scholarships for high school seniors pursuing careers in health care
