Mission & Vision of Centre Volunteers in Medicine
CVIM Mission: Centre Volunteers in Medicine will serve and advocate the medically underserved living or working in Centre County.
CVIM Vision: All those who live and work in Centre County will have access to quality health care.
At Centre Volunteers in Medicine, we value human dignity and access to quality, compassionate health care for all. We do this in a culturally competent manner, and through our mission and programs help to eliminate the barriers to health equity.
Thank you to our generous donors who gave HOPE to others during our 2021 Friends and Family campaign. Because of their support, CVIM will be able to continue our mission, while giving HOPE to each patient through quality healthcare.
What do you HOPE for in 2022? We HOPE you, our friends and family, have a happy and healthy New Year!
Run for CVIM Challenge
March 15, 2021 Kickoff
In 2002, John Domico ran the Boston Marathon on behalf of CVIM raising $3,500. A year later, seven runners going to Boston joined John's fundraising efforts. To date, our marathoners have raised over $720,000 for patient care. The Run for CVIM Challenge sponsored by Mount Nittany Health began this year on March 15.
In order to enable as many people as possible to participate this year and allow maximum flexibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering three options:
1) Pick a race (traditional or virtual) on any date this year and run for CVIM.
2) Create your own solo running event and take a “runfie” photo to document your run.
3) Participate in a “Run for Medicine Relay” at Spring Creek Canyon with two one-mile legs and two three-mile legs (date to be determined).
Sign up to run or sponsor a runner in support of CVIM. Social distancing guidelines will be respected.
As you shop on Amazon throughout the year, you can designate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases be donated to CVIM. Simply enter the Amazon website through the AmazonSmile webpage.
Contact us for more information about other donor opportunities to help provide care for those in your community.
