Greystone 5K for Breast Cancer

Greystone 5K for Breast Cancer
By Tori Couch
November 2014
October marked Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and
Greystone did our part by participating in and donating to
the second annual Tampa Bay Buccaneers Treasure Chests
5K Run/Walk, proceeds of which were donated to breast
cancer awareness and education as well as research funds.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death and the
most commonly diagnosed form of cancer among women,
claiming 40,000 lives a year. One in eight women are
diagnosed during their lifetime.
In This Issue
Greystone sponsored 55 associates who woke up bright
and early to participate in the event, running or walking
for the cause. Both local associates from our
Tampa office as well as those as far away as The
Club Health & Rehab made the early morning
journey to Raymond James stadium for the run.

There are only two more months of the year and we are excited to start
a new year here at Park Meadows. We are continually working on
improving the customer service and the physical look of the building and
have many projects planned. These last two months will be very busy
and we look forward to creating a new look. If you have a new idea or a
suggestion, please let us know so we can look into it. We are always
open for new ideas and ways to improve our customer service. We
appreciate your patience and understanding during this time as we
complete a facelift for our members, staff, and visitors.
November is a time to give thanks and I want to personally thank our
staff for their continued hard work and dedication to the residents and
the facility. Each and every day is a blessing to work with everyone here
and I appreciate all that you do.
