MASSENA Massena Memorial Hospital was the recipient of a $10,000 check from the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund, hospital Chief Executive Officer Charles F. Fahd II told his board of managers this week.
Mr. Fahd noted the board members were very thankful for the money from the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund, previously known as the Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life.
More than 300 individuals walked in the 2014 event held April 27 in Canton, and they raised $71,446.03 to battle cancer in the north country.
Longtime event organizer Warren Dyke presented the check to hospital officials.
We thank him dearly for that check. We will put it to good use, Mr. Fahd said.
He said the hospital has received a donation from the organization on a nearly annual basis.
