Altru’s Harvest Gala 2014 Raises over $260,000 for Colorectal Cancer Screenings
Altru Health Foundation, along with main event sponsor Alerus Financial, hosted the tenth anniversary of Altru’s Harvest Gala on September 27 at the Alerus Center. Over $260,000 was raised for Altru’s Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative.
“Through the funds raised, 144 patients will be able to have a no cost screening colonoscopy,” says Loree Alberts, manager of Altru’s Endoscopy Center. “This makes a real difference in the prevention of colorectal cancer in our area by helping those who cannot afford a screening colonoscopy. The generosity of our community is amazing!”
