Join breast cancer awareness supporters from across the region for the fourth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Poker Run to be held on July 26, 2014.
This poker run is organized by the Armed Forces Motorcycle Club. You don’t have to ride a motorcycle to participate, but you must use a street-legal vehicle, such as a car or a bicycle. Participants will drive a route and stop at various checkpoints to collect a playing card. The goal is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. A cash prize will be awarded to both the highest and the lowest hands at the end of the ride.
Registration will begin at 10:30 am at Park Circle Café in Cambridge. You’ll be assigned a departure time, and the last rider/vehicle out will be at noon. All participants should be at the final stop, Airport Tavern in Lore City, at 5 pm.
The cost to participate is $15 per person, which covers the poker run, dinner, great entertainment and a ticket for the door prize drawing. Participants will also be able to purchase tickets for a raffle drawing. Raffle prizes include a muzzleloader with scope, gas grill, and two $100 Harley-Davidson gift certificates.
All funds raised will benefit Southeastern Med’s Power Me Pink program, which provides women in the Cambridge, OH area with free mammograms, transportation to and from breast cancer treatment, and other services. We hope to raise $10,000 during this year’s event.

The SEORMC Children's Health Fair Gives Kids a Batter Chance at Health!
Southeastern Med’s 23rd Annual Children’s Health Fair is scheduled for Thursday, June 19th from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cambridge City Park Pavilion. This year’s baseball-themed event will be a great way for kids aged 3-11 and their families to learn about important health and safety practices.
More than 30 local organizations and businesses will have interactive exhibits promoting health and safety topics. We’ll also play fun games and enjoy healthy snacks that will highlight the importance of exercise and making smart food choices.
There’s no cost to attend the fair.
The Children’s Health Fair is a popular community event – more than 300 kids and their families attended last year!

On Wednesday, March 12th, the Southeastern Med Auxiliary will be hosting a community health screening event to help raise funds to provide equipment to enhance patient comfort and improve the facilities available at Southeastern Med.
Southeastern Med Auxiliary is dedicated to enhancing patient care through community fundraisers. This year the Auxiliary members chose to further enhance their community efforts by providing a fundraiser that will also directly benefit those underinsured and uninsured of the community, ages 18 and older.
The event begins at 7 a.m. and will conclude at 9 a.m. The event consists of a Health Profile Screening for $50. This screening includes a complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, lipid profile, and hemoglobin A1C. Participants may choose to also have a TSH (thyroid) and/or a PSA (prostate) screening performed for $15 each. The Health Profile screening package requires a 10 to 12 hour fast. Those participating can still take any morning medications as usual with small sips of water only.
Registrations for this health event can be made by calling 740-435-2900. The event will be held at the Community Health Link at 1205 Clark Street, Cambridge, OH.
