The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation Sponsors 5K Run to Benefit Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center
MIAMI, Fla., October 16, 2016— The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation, a family-run charitable organization dedicated to creating a generational legacy of giving, sponsored the Village of Bal Harbour 5k Run. All of the proceeds benefited the Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center, a national facility that utilizes a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating a broad range of cancers.
“Our foundation has had a long-standing relationship with Mount Sinai. We knew it would be a great opportunity to support the local cancer center while raising community awareness,” said Eugene Frenkel, Director of The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation. “In 2016, it is estimated that nearly 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and nearly 600,000 people will succumb to the disease. The money raised during this event will allow Mount Sinai to provide the care and research needed to eradicate such debilitating and deadly diseases.”
Starting on 96th Street and concluding at Bal Harbour City Hall, the nearly 150 entrants ran to raise money and awareness for Mount Sinai’s work in cancer research.
This year’s event, co-hosted by the Village of Bal Harbour and the Bal Harbour Police Department, raised $5,620 in support of Mount Sinai’s mission to provide high quality care to the Bal Harbour community. One hundred percent of the proceeds went directly to the center.
