Bartell Drugs sponsors the Walk for Hope for women's cancer research

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Bartell Drugs will be joining the fight against women's cancers as a sponsor of the City of Hope's annual Walk for Hope on Sunday, October 3 at Seattle's Warren G. Magnuson Park.

Walk for Hope brochures are available at camera and pharmacy counters at all Bartell Drugs locations. Visit the website for more information or to register for the Walk.

City of Hope's Walk for Hope is the only national series of walks that directly benefits research, treatment and education programs for cancers unique to women. City of Hope has more than 40 collaborations with cancer and medical centers in Washington, including Fred Hutchinson, University of Washington, Children's Hospital and others.

Through its multidisciplinary Women's Cancers Program, City of Hope is working to improve outcomes for women with breast and gynecological cancers. Researchers are investigating risk factors for ovarian and endometrial cancers, as well as interventions that could reduce those risks. Scientists also are identifying potential therapies, including targeted treatments and prevention methods, and exploring the challenges experienced by women undergoing treatment for breast and gynecologic cancers to improve treatment-related complications for survivors.

Seattle Chocolates' Survivor Chick(r) chocolate bars are now on sale at Bartell's through the end of October-with $1.50 from each $2.99 bar sold benefiting life-saving research, treatment and education at City of Hope. Also available at Bartell's are Walk for Hope reusable totes for $1.99-where $1.00 from the purchase of each bag is donated directly to City of Hope.

Founded in Seattle in 1890, Bartell Drugs owns and operates stores in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties. Family-owned and operated, it is the nation's oldest drugstore chain.

The Shoreline Bartell Drugs is in Gateway Plaza at N 185 between Midvale and Aurora.
