Dr. Angela Passanise, D.O., and Dr. Richard Stanley, D.O., of The Corvallis Clinic’s Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Department, in collaboration with The Corvallis Clinic’s Foundation, are presenting a donation of $1,000 to the Corvallis High School Athletic Department at half-time during the CHS home basketball game on January 14.
The donation is for the recognition of CHS students, families, and staff who participated in The Clinic’s October 5, 2019 “Run for the Health of It!” Annual 5K Run/Walk. South Albany High School will also receive $1,000, $700 will be donated to Philomath High School, and Santiam Christian High School will receive $500. The race was founded by Dr. Angela Passanise, Orthopedic Surgeon of The Corvallis Clinic’s Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Department.
“Our race was started a year ago to promote good health and to support local high school sports programs. Proceeds from the race are distributed to the schools with the greatest number of race participants. We’ve been thrilled by the growing community support for the race, and are honored to be able to contribute to four different schools this year, says Dr. Angela Passanise.
“We cannot thank The Corvallis Clinic enough for their generosity. The Corvallis High School Athletic Department would not be able to sustain without the generosity of community partners, so we are always thankful when others support our student-athletes; this means a lot,” says Salvador Munoz, Athletic Director for Corvallis High School.
The $1,000 donation will be presented to Corvallis High School at 7:30 p.m. PST on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, in the gymnasium at the school’s basketball game.
The Corvallis Clinic’s goals are to increase more race participants, donations to high school athletic programs, and award larger donations to athletic departments for the 2020 Run for the Health of It! 5K.
