Raised by 3 people in 8 months
ProHealth Community Healthcare Center will be hosting their first annual fundraiser, called "Tour De Franklin"; this event will be held October 2017. This event will consist of numerous cyclist that will be traveling from various locations, and ride various routes that will be clearly marked, as well as havig fully stocked rest stops along the way, in conjuction of having annual health screenings and sports physicals. 

The reason for this event is to bring awareness of Hepatitis C to the community, as well as inform and educate our community of the signs, and treatments available for Hepatitis C. Currently we have more than 200 Hepatitis C patients in our database that are not receiving treatment. The funds will be applied towards our uninsured and underinsured patients that need financial assistance for treatment and medication. 

Hepatitis C is more common than most people know and the rate of acute Hepatitis C cases in Tennessee has more than tripled in the last seven years, and the steadily increasing number of cases may only represent "the tip of the iceberg" of the state's Hepatitis C epidemic, according to TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. "In addition to reported cases of acute Hepatitis C it is estimated that more than 100,000 Tennesseans may be living with chronic Hepatitis C and not know it," Dreyzehner said. "Many people have Hepatitis C for years, not realizing it, while the viral infection slowly destroys their livers."

We here at ProHealth are in need of your help to promote and fund our Hepatitis C program  for our uninsured and underinsured patients. There are three levels of corporate levels of sponsorship packages. 

Gold Circle: $7,000 and up
Silver Circle: $5,000 - $6,999
Bronze Circle: $2,500 - $4,999

ProHealth is also, seeking In-kind donations for our kick off event prior to our main event "Tour De Franklin", which will be held Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 6pm to 10pm. This event will be a cocktail party and a silent auction, which will be held at the Franklin City Club. Financial support is extremely important to ProHealth as we rely on donations to provide a wide variety for scale base support programs and services in the community, which are needed and valued by those in this community. We depend on the added support of our friends and contacts in the business community for support. We cordially invite you to contribute by Wednesday, July 5, 2017 by:
