McLeod for Health Florence Open donates to Susan G Komen Lowcountry

FLORENCE, SC (WBW) – The net proceeds from the McLeod for Health Florence Open, which is a partnership between McLeod Health and the City of Florence, were donated $12,700 to the Susan G Komen Lowcountry organization.

The non-profit helps fight breast cancer through treatment programs and screenings.

“Our goal is to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the US by 2026 which is a pretty daunting goal, and it’s partnerships and support like this that are gonna make that happen,” said Lucy Spears, Director Mission Programs Komen South Carolina.

The money was raised in last October’s McLeod for Health Florence open tennis tournament.
