The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has pledged more than a million dollars for the Ellen Hermanson Breast Cancer Center at Southampton Hospital and as a result, the Center has tripled its size. Along with this generous donation, the Foundation also pledged more than $200,000 for a 3D mammography machine at Southampton Hospital.
The generous Foundation will be making more strides to work toward finding a cure while sponsoring the 18th annual Ellen’s Run, a 5K run or walk on Sunday, August 18, which will commence, rain or shine, at 9 a.m. at Southampton Hospital’s Parrish Hall on Herrick Road.
Sponsors of this year’s Ellen’s Run include Andrew Sabin Family Foundation, Bloomberg, Bridgehampton National Bank, Corcoran, Eastern Long Island Hematology Oncology, Panera Bread, Hampton Coffee, Hamptons Water Company, Hint Water, ISA Advertising, Modell’s, The Golden Pear, The Rite-Aid Foundation, WBAZ, WEHM and WLNG.
