Patient First Sponsors 22nd Annual HopeCam 5K in Reston, VA

On May 1st, more than 500 families gathered to support and raise funds for HopeCam at the 22nd Annual HopeCam 5k. 

HopeCam is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity with the mission of using voice and video technology to help children with cancer overcome the burden of social isolation. By virtually connecting these children with their friends and families over a video conferencing application, HopeCam decreases the loneliness and anxiety they experience during this frightening time.

At the 5k event, children who are currently battling cancer offered their testimony about how HopeCam provides them hope, and allows them to connect with their teachers and classmates. Patient First staff enjoyed engaging with the families and seeing the children smile. This fun event included alpacas, Disney characters, rock climbing exhibit and face painting station.

Patient First is a proud supporter of HopeCam.
