People from all over Philadelphia turned out on Saturday, April 21, to participate in the Annual Point Breeze 5K and Health Fair.

In a collaboration between Sky Community Partnerships, a health-focused nonprofit, and Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, the run and fair were meant to address two of the main barriers to healthcare—education and access. To combat these issues, the event was intentionally staged in an underserved neighborhood to make it easier for people to seek assistance and featured a wide selection of free health screenings.

Proceeds from the run benefited Dr. Jonathan Brody’s pancreatic cancer research at SKCC.
