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 Dr. Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic at CVIM honors the spirit and legacy of one individual’s dedication to giving back to his community. In 2017, Chuck Herlocher, because of his belief in what we are doing for our dental patients at CVIM, matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, donations received during the 2017 Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic Campaign. It’s not too late to donate this year! We are always accepting donations.
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. In 2014, the Marathoners for Medicine team was selected as a local hero/heroine winner of the Central PA Arts Festival.
Last year, we had 26 (imagine that) runners going to various marathons throughout the United States and beyond. Individuals took their love of running to new levels, supporting those in need of medical and dental care. To date, our marathoners have raised over $575,000.
Friends & Family Campaign
For the last 15 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.
