Pink Ribbon 5K

Money Raised: $33,793 Charity Goal: $30,000

About Pink Ribbon 5K

The Pink Ribbon 5K raises charitable support for the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund at Frederick Memorial Hospital.  

Established in 1999 by Jeff & Patty Hurwitz, the goal of the Fund is to provide the most innovative options in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer for our community. Contributions to the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund are helping to save lives here in Frederick County, Maryland. Every dollar donated is used for direct patient benefit -  there are no administrative costs. 

Since inception the Fund has raised more than $1.7 million through charitable contributions.


Here are just a few of the provided thanks to the support of the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund:

  • Funds help make the new James M Stockman Cancer Institute a reality for cancer patients in our community.
  • A special breast coil was purchased for use with digital imaging of the breast.
  • 3D & CAD Mammography Systems have been purchased to assist in the detection of breast cancer at an earlier stage; allowing for more successful outcomes.
  • Created a healing space for patients and families at the Center for Breast Care at FMH Crestwood.
  • Purchased a device that enables the surgeon/radiologist to examine biopsy tissue in the operating room; this makes biopsies easier on the patient and returns results more quickly.


The Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund is a fund of Frederick Memorial Hospital, a private, not-for-profit, community hospital with a 501 (c)(3) tax status. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
