Valley of the Sun Chapter’s 5K Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer

For the past five years we have partnered with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalitions – Valley of the Sun Chapter in sponsorship of their annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer.

Join us at the 5K as we walk in support of Valley of the Sun Chapter’s efforts to spread hope, awareness and an increased quality of life to all who have been touched by ovarian cancer.

5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer

The Coalition is on mission to increase awareness about the early warning signs, symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. Found early enough, women have a 90% survival rate after being diagnosed with this disease.

Funds raised during the 8th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer will benefit ovarian cancer patients, survivors and their care takers around the Phoenix area.

Thank You: Frozen Turkey Saturday Donation

Kevin and Cindy,

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back ALWAYS comes through for Phoenix Rescue Mission. Each year you raise the bar higher and allow PRM to help more and more people in need. Last Saturday, Lerner and Rowe Gives Back sent 12 or more dedicated employees to not only pick up 450 turkeys at Bashas but also unpack them again at our Community Service Center. That was quite a chore.

Our final turkey count for last Saturday was 832 which means that L & R Gives Back provided OVER 50% of the turkeys collected on Frozen Turkey Saturday. Because of Lerner and Rowe Gives Back’s generosity, 450 families will experience the blessing of a delicious homemade Thanksgiving meal to be shared with friends and family. This upcoming Saturday 11/19 over 100 volunteers will hand-deliver each turkey that we collected along with a food box containing all the Thanksgiving fixings to families across the Valley. These volunteers will interact with the families, making sure they are doing OK, giving them HOPE and even will pray with them if they so choose.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, Jay Cory our CEO, PRM’s enthusiastic staff, our dedicated donors and especially the clients we serve, thank you for your faithful support which allows PRM to complete its Mission Statement to “Provide Christ-centered life transforming solutions to persons facing hunger and homelessness”.

May God bless you and all your employees for your generosity and compassionate heart for The Least, The Last and The Lost.
