Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center is proud to be an Elite sponsor of the 17th Annual Gouverneur Breast Cancer Walk (GBCW) on May 29, 2018. Claxton-Hepburn has been a corporate sponsor of the event for several years and had nearly 75 walkers represent the Medical Center in 2017’s event. Over 2,000 people from St. Lawrence, Lewis and Jefferson Counties come together to support local women in their fight against breast cancer. Last year’s Walk raised over $117,000. The money raised helps numerous breast cancer patients at Claxton-Hepburn’s Breast Health Center and Richard E. Winter Cancer Center (REWCC).
