During the month of June, Doctors Care is recognizing student athletes and their schools who are making health education a top priority. To show their support, Doctors Care is contributing $40,000 to more than 200 schools around the state.
Both Mid-Carolina and Newberry middle and high schools received money from the grant.
Throughout the school year, Doctors Care encourages student athletes to get their annual sports physicals in order to make sure that they are in good health and are able to perform at their best during the upcoming athletic seasons.
As part of a special program called Doctors Care Sports Physical Give Back, the organization contributes $5 to the
school’s athletic program for each of their students that receive a physical at a Doctors Care facility.
On June 5, Doctors Care leaders recognized participating schools in the Upstate by presenting the school’s administrators with their checks.
Chris Hudson, CEO of Doctors Care says that the organization proudly supports these schools and their dedication to making sure that their students stay healthy and active.
“These students are our future and our organization is excited about being about to contribute to these schools. It means a lot to our organization to be able to have the opportunity to have events like these we can personally meet and thank the administrators and present them with their checks.”
The Doctors Care Sports Physical Give Back Program tour will continue on Tuesday, as Doctors Care leaders travel to the Lowcountry and Grand Strand to recognize participating area schools and their student athletes.
