Ache Around The Lake 2017

The 12th Annual Ache Around the Lake was held at Lake Lanier on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

Ache Around the Lake is a community event that includes The Ache (8K or 5 miles) or The Ouch (a two-mile fun run). Since 2007, proceeds from the Ache charity race event have helped St. Luke’s Hospital upgrade our Radiology Department to digital technology, as well as upgrade Surgery, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, our Geriatric Psychiatry Unit, and Pharmacy. In 2013, the Ache proceeds were used toward the Activities of Daily Living Lab at St. Luke’s Hospital. Monies raised helped cover the costs of the simulated kitchen, tub, shower, curb, and vehicle, as well as support other projects throughout the ADL Lab.

For Ache 2015 and Ache 2016, proceeds benefitted the Discretionary Fund at St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation. This fund enables the Foundation to exercise discretionary spending when evaluating and purchasing small equipment items, facilitating required equipment repairs, or accommodating other unplanned expenses that develop during the course of the hospital’s fiscal year.

Proceeds for 2017 benefited the Infusion Center at St. Luke’s Hospital. St. Luke’s Hospital Infusion Center, a member of Levine Cancer Institute (LCI) Network, offers the community a close-to-home alternative for chemotherapy and IV therapy treatments. Patients no longer have to travel far to obtain the care they need.

In addition to treatments for cancer diagnoses, patients have the support of ground-breaking clinical trials and expertise in sub-specialty cancer care. In addition to chemotherapy, area residents needing blood transfusions, arthritis infusion therapy or other IV medication can count on St. Luke’s Hospital Infusion Center to deliver that care in an atmosphere that’s both comfortable and focused on their specific treatment needs.
