Chasing the Record at Legacy Chase!

The Greater Baltimore community has trusted GBMC HealthCare with providing the highest level of compassionate care for more than 50 years. With advanced treatment options available from some of the region’s leading physicians, the Sandra & Malcolm Berman Cancer Institute is no exception. Statistics show that one in three people has been touched by cancer in some way. Whether a loved one has battled cancer or you personally have been diagnosed, the reality is that cancer affects us all.

Join us Saturday, September 24, 2016 for the 16th annual Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs. Set in in Maryland’s picturesque horse country, Legacy Chase is GBMC’s signature event benefiting its oncology services and patient support programs. Fill up your car with family and friends, pack a cooler and picnic and spend a day in the warm September sun for this homecoming of the GBMC community. With family-friendly activities, steeplechase horse racing, food trucks and a Vendor Village, Legacy Chase offers something for everyone.

To add to the fun, this year, we’re attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest awareness ribbon – right in the infield of Shawan Downs! Stretching a mile and a half long, the lavender ribbon is a symbol of GBMC’s commitment to the fight against all cancers. Join us for this momentous occasion as we “chase the record!”
