For the seventh consecutive year, Baptist Hospital hosted the American Cancer Society’s East Kendall Relay for Life around the hospital campus lake on March 24.
More than 5,000 people attended the overnight event that raised $245,000 for the Society’s research, education and patient services. Baptist Health South Florida supports the event. Its staff and patients help plan and participate in the event.
