Story by: Norton Healthcare on December 30, 2019
In 2017, Churchill Downs named the Norton Healthcare Foundation its charitable beneficiary of the Kentucky Oaks. Over the past year, Churchill Downs raised more than $75,000 to benefit breast health at Norton Cancer Institute, specifically funding a 3D tomography machine for the Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center.
As a not-for-profit health care provider, Norton Healthcare relies on the generosity of the community to help us continue to provide the quality of care our patients have come to know and expect.
This mobile center helps to provide care for women in our community who lack access to necessary breast health screenings and services. In 2018, Churchill Downs made a three-year commitment to continue the Oaks partnership. The money raised from this collaboration will help fund the purchase of a new mobile prevention unit to help service a higher volume of patients.
In just two years, Churchill Downs has donated over $187,000, with an additional $100,000 anticipated in 2020. The money it has raised for the Norton Healthcare Foundation provides crucial support for the health of women in this community.
Recognizing Churchill Downs’ support of the Norton Healthcare Foundation and other community organizations, the Association for Fundraising Professionals of Greater Louisville named Churchill Downs as Philanthropist of the Year – Organization.
