Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic Campaign
There are currently over 1,000 individuals on the waiting list for the Dr. Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic at CVIM. It’s a little-known fact that dental disease and poor dental health can cause major complications and illness, even death. Early diagnosis, preventative treatment, and early intervention can prevent or halt the progress of oral disease.
The Dental Clinic honors the spirit and legacy of Dr. Madore’s dedication to giving back to his community. Typical of the impact of the Dental Clinic has on our community, one of our patients writes:
Since my teeth began to break off I needed to consider total extractions. A friend and co-worker told me about CVIM and her experience with the dental staff. I became a patient and saw Dr. Stein. I was totally pleased. He is a gentle and informative dentist. The entire dental staff are very caring individuals. So glad I found CVIM! Thank you for the wonderful care. God Bless everyone who makesthese services to our community possible. I am in the process of getting dentures now that the final extraction was completed on April 16, 2019. I am looking forward to having my smile back in the months to come.
Friends & Family Campaign
For the last 17 years, because of their belief in what we do, Lance and Ellen Shaner, have matched $50,000 for individual donations to the Friends and Family campaign. Lance was inspired to make their initial gift by a six-year-old CVIM patient who asked his friends for donations to CVIM instead of birthday gifts.
100% of funds raised in this campaign remain in Centre County to provide medical and dental care, case management, and medication assistance for CVIM patients.
Marathoners for Medicine
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. Last year 26 runners participated in marathons throughout the United State. Individuals took their love of running to new levels, exceeding their fund-raising goal of $46,000. To date, our marathoners have raised over $720,000 for patient care
The 2020 season began with a kickoff celebration at CVIM on Thursday, February 6th. While a few of our Marathoners were able to run their races early in the year, most of the team quickly realized that most races were either postponed or canceled. With the uncertainty of what was to come and realizing that CVIM needed the funds more than ever, many of our team members chose clever ways to run their distances virtually.
Despite our best efforts, we did not reach our goal by the ending date, June 30th. We therefore chose to extend our campaign until the end of 2020. Thank you to our runners and supporters for their dedication to the Marathoners for Medicine annual event.
