The success of Cupid’s Cup 5K is dependent upon support from sponsors and community volunteers. Cupid’s Cup 5K, highlighting CHS- Pineville, Southpark, and Union cardiovascular health and rehabilitation programs, will provide resources and valuable funding for patient education, outreach, and for the Scholarship Program for Cardiac Rehab programs.
How Cupid's Cup supporters have impacted our patients in recent years:
In 2015, 102 patients received scholarships allowing them to fully benefit from cardiac rehabilitation at Carolinas HealthCare System facilities. A total of $94,916 was raised in grant funding used for patient scholarships, which also covered the cost of pedometers and a recumbent bike. Year to-date, 77 patients have received scholarships, totalling $29,181 in scholarship funding for cardiac rehabilitation.
