Free Clinic staff thanks Walk with the Docs participants
Thank you all so much for the wonderful support shown for our 12th annual Walk With the Docs on April 29 at Davidson Hall at Coker College. This fundraiser is held in honor of our clinical volunteers who give of their time and talent to care for our patients.
Approximately 65 people, including many of our doctors and nurse practitioners, gathered at Davidson Hall to walk in honor of the volunteers that serve at the Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County. Allen Covington, Music Minister at Lakeview Baptist Church, provided music to play games by and to spend time together before the Walk. Guests and staff from Morningside of Hartsville joined the fun by riding in golf carts through the city of Hartsville.
Before the Walk at 9a.m., a bounce house from Ace Hardware, YMCA fitness games, hula hoop contests, Frisbee toss, and other games were enjoyed by children and adults. At 10 a.m., the Walk began on Coker’s campus and continued through downtown areas and College Avenue neighborhoods for approximately 3 miles. Each walker received a Walk t-shirt with a sponsor’s bag full of donated gifts and water donated by Embrace Hospice. Paddle signs were provided for the walkers to carry after writing their favorite volunteers’ names on them to honor their service. The proceeds totaled $6,855 to benefit the patients of the Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County.
Many thanks to our community for coming out and supporting the Free Medical Clinic. Please pass the word to anyone you might know that is having difficulty seeing a doctor and purchasing their medications so we can see if we can help. God bless you all.
