April 12, 2012 - Harris, N.Y. – The Liberty High School girls basketball team recently presented Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) with a check for $415. The funds were raised at a “Pink Out” fundraiser game on Feb. 21; all proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to CRMC’s Oncology Department.
On April 5, a group of eight students and Coach Beth Quantrale presented the check to Geri Orr, CRMC’s Assistant Vice President of Professional Services. The group then took a tour of the Oncology Unit at CRMC.
“I am really proud of the girls,” said Quantrale. “They wanted to do this fundraiser and did a great job spreading the word, decorating the gym and making up shirts. The event was fun and for a great cause.”
Cancer Care at CRMC includes a well-developed oncology program that offers a multidisciplinary team approach combined with quality care. The program continues to be distinguished by the excellent and compassionate patient care it provides.
