Gary Gensch presents Dr. William Grady with a donation check

On July 31st, RACE Charities Foundation was pleased to present Dr. William Grady of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) with its sixth consecutive donation check.  Dr. Grady’s world-renowned research laboratory specializes in colon cancer early detection and prevention and the strides that FHCC is making in this area of science and cancer research is phenomenal.  RACE Foundation members were honored to spend nearly two hours with Dr. Grady to learn about how important and useful the donated funds have gone toward advancing various projects and initiatives in the area of early detection of colon cancer.

Dr. Grady is leading the way on a nation-wide 6,000 person colon cancer study dedicated to early detection which could change the way detection methods are used and equate to major breakthroughs and progress in the very near future!  We are very excited about this and will provide more details about the study on this RACE Charites website very soon!

We were also pleased to see Glory’s name on the HONOR WALL of donors and donating organizations (RACE Charities) who achieve a higher level of gross donations to the Center (see photo) as well as the newly installed Memory Brick in honor of Glory Gensch, which will forever be a part of the famous Fred Hutch Courtyard.  The Brick reads:







In Glory's words-

If just one life is saved, the sacrifices we all make will be worth it.
