Over 60 Salter HealthCare team members turned out this past Saturday for Lahey Health’s 12th Annual 5K Cancer Walk & Run at Burlington High School, adding to the more than 1,000 cancer survivors, clinicians, family members and friends who walked or ran on behalf of patients who receive cancer care at a Lahey Health hospital. As the presenting sponsor, Salter contributed funds and staff to help raise money for cancer research, treatment and support, such as risk assessment tools, support groups, classes and integrative medicine options for patients at Addison Gilbert, Beverly, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Lahey, Peabody and Winchester hospitals. Lahey raised over $320,000, exceeding their goal of $285,000. Collectively, over the past 11 years, over $2 million has been raised at this annual event.
