Fredericksburg, VA (March 25, 2019) – Stafford Hospital Foundation
is pleased to announce
95 Express Lanes operated by Transurban as the Presenting Sponsor of this year’s Stafford Hospital Spring
Fever 5K race. The race will be held rain or shine on Saturday, April
6 on the Stafford Hospital campus; and is part of the Coldwell Banker
Elite Grand Prix, a series of 12 races that take place in the greater
Fredericksburg region, and the Stafford Race Series, a set of three races
to promote community engagement and wellness activities in the county.
“We are very appreciative of Transurban’s support of this community
effort, as they have done in other communities in which they are doing
great work,” said Xavier R. Richardson, President of the Stafford
Hospital Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of 95 Express Lanes operated
by Transurban, and of additional sponsors and donors, the Stafford Hospital
Foundation supports Mary Washington Healthcare’s mission to improve
the health of the people in the communities we serve. Since the inception
of the Stafford Hospital 5K race ten years ago, the event has raised more
than $193,000 to support operational, program, training, and equipment
needs of Stafford Hospital.
In addition, through the Stafford Hospital Foundation’s Community
Benefit Fund, over $1.5 million has been given to further aid local access
to health and wellness services and information. The Foundation has awarded
grants to 14 organizations throughout Stafford County, including Stafford
Junction, ACTS, and Stafford County Department of Social Services.
In February 2019, Stafford Hospital celebrated ten years of service. Since
the hospital opened in 2009, Stafford Hospital has offered quality healthcare
to its patients, improved access to care, and grown through the expansion
of services and state-of-the-art equipment.
