Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation raised nearly $55,000 through the second annual Step Up 4 Health and Wellness Expo last month. 

The event, which was held on Saturday, April 15, at Methodist University, raised money to support several different patient care areas at Cape Fear Valley Health, including cancer care, heart care, children’s services, Community Alternatives Program and Cumberland County Medication Access Program.

“We were very excited to see more than 500 participants at this year’s event, and we expect to continue to grow more in the future,” said Cape Fear Valley Health Vice President of Foundation Sabrina Brooks in a press release. “We had a great sunny day with beautiful weather and I think everyone had a lot of fun with all the activities.”

More than 50 vendors were present in the Wellness Expo, including different Cape Fear Valley Health service lines, community organizations and sponsors. There were also food trucks, a Survivor Lap, Zumba and yoga sessions. The main activities were the 4k and 1-mile walking or running routes through the Methodist University campus.

“We want to sincerely thank our Presenting Sponsor, Cumulus Media, as well as our host, Methodist University, for helping us put on such a fantastic event,” Brooks said in a press release.

Additional major sponsors for the event included Cape Fear Valley Health, Systel Business Equipment, Truist, Pepsi Bottling Ventures and Valley Radiology.
