Save the Date for Team SCH 2018! Team SCH will again be competing in the Chicago Triathlon on August 25-26 and the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K on September 23. Registration will open in March 2018. Check back for details!
Congrats to Team SCH 2017 for completing the Chicago Triathlon and Chicago Half Marathon & 5K in support of Swedish Covenant Hospital. Nearly 50 Team SCH athletes raised $15,000 to increase access to mammograms for uninsured, low-income women through the Community Breast Health Program
Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Community Breast Health Program serves women who face the greatest challenges accessing breast cancer detection and treatment due to financial, cultural, and language barriers. In addition to cancer detection services, such as mammograms, ultrasounds and biopsies, the program provides breast health education and access to a navigation team that works with breast cancer patients from diagnosis through survivorship. All of these services are provided at no cost to women in need. Last year, more than 1,300 women received free breast cancer screenings through the program. The average cost of each screening is between $115 and $150.
