Hampton Coffee Company was so proud to be able to support the Ellen Hermanson Foundation on Sunday for the running of their 28th Annual Ellen's Run through the streets of Southampton Village. We provided the morning coffee break for volunteers and race organizers, raised money, and even had a Hampton Coffee Company Team run the 5K!
Ellen’s Run, an annual 5K race, is the signature fundraising event of The Ellen Hermanson Foundation and an innovative, grassroots event, that raises awareness about breast cancer. Held on the East End of Long Island, where breast cancer diagnosis and mortality rates are among the highest in the state of New York, Ellen’s Run draws on the strength of the community and gives back by providing mammography screenings, support and education. Proceeds from Ellen’s Run support the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital by funding state-of-the-art technology. Ellen’s Run also supports Ellen’s Well, a program that provides psychosocial support for breast cancer survivors under the leadership of a specially trained oncological social worker.What we love most about the Foundation is that no patient is turned away from the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center for lack of insurance or inability to pay for treatment. In addition, all services though Ellen’s Well are provided free of charge. Please join us in supporting this amazing organization in our community!
