The San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS) Foundation recently raised $10,184 as part of its “$10K in 29 Days” social media campaign. Donations were matched by the agency’s board of directors and a grant from The Parker Foundation, which ultimately provided a total of $40,184 to help coordinate pro bono specialty care for San Diegans who are low income or unemployed. The SDCMS Foundation is celebrating 10 years of service and its flagship program, Project Access San Diego, has cared for more than 2,900 patients – therefore, the agency set a fundraising goal of $10,000 in 29 days.

“Our patients are eternally grateful to our physician volunteers as well as community members for their support,” said SDCMS Foundation Executive Director Barbara Mandel. On Nov. 14, the agency’s 2nd Annual Solana Beach Sunset 5K Run/Walk will enlist community members to participate in a fun fitness experience while learning about diabetes prevention.
