Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center Receives Donation from The Body Shop
The Beebe Medical Foundation received a generous gift of support from The Body Shop from their annual Thanksgiving Day Beach Boot Camp. This year, the event raised $840 with additional support from a spin class. The gift was presented to Beebe’s Tunnell Cancer Center.
“Once again, it is a great testimony of strong support when our local businesses chose our local Beebe Healthcare Tunnell Cancer Center to be the beneficiary of their annual fundraising. More than ever, Beebe needs increased support as we build a second cancer center in our south coastal region,” said Tom Protack, Vice President of Development, Beebe Medical Foundation.
Adam Howard, owner of The Body Shop, added, “I have so many connections to Beebe, and this fundraiser is a way for me to give back. The Body Shop fitness center is devoted to our clients and committed to our community.”
Coach Bruce Clayton of The Body Shop and TriCoach said, "We are proud to make this an annual event and each year we are attracting more participants who want to help support Tunnell Cancer Center while having a lot of fun in the process!”
Mark your calendar for next year and join the group Thanksgiving morning to support Beebe’s Oncology Services and Tunnell Cancer Center. Beebe Medical Foundation is working to raise funds for the new cancer center, planned for the South Coastal Health Campus near Millville. Learn more: www.nextgenerationofcare.org.
