Gloria Gemma Foundation Charity Spotlight

We at Car Donation Wizard are proud to work with the Gloria Gemma Foundation, a local organization that supports those affected by breast cancer.

Gloria Gemma Foundation

The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Research Foundation supports our local community, in Rhode Island, southern Massachusetts, and eastern Connecticut. Their headquarters are nearby our Middletown office, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The Foundation was established in 2004, to honor the memory of Gloria Gemma, a brave and loving wife and mother of nine who lost the fight to cancer in 2002. The organization started as a simple website with information for cancer patients and their families. Over time, it grew into a substantial organization that provides free, holistic programs to heal mind, body, and spirit.

There are a wide array of programs offered, including:

  • healthy body classes, ranging from gentle yoga to nutrition and cooking
  • support groups that provide emotional support and community
  • Pink Spirit Program brings breast cancer education to students and local businesses

The monthly event calendar shows all free programs and is a great resource for individuals, families, and communities.

The Run/Walk Series is a great way to actively support the Gloria Gemma Foundation, and the next one is coming up on September 30th, 2018!

Gloria Gemma 5K Road Race

The third annual Gloria Gemma 5K is Sunday October 9, 2011 in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. If you’re interested in running or walking in the race, please fill out the donation form here. Donations are tax deductible!

Why join the race?

Chances are you or someone you know has been affected by breast cancer. The simple facts are that one in eight women will be diagnosed with this disease in her lifetime and one woman dies from this disease every 12 minutes in the U.S. If breast cancer is detected in its early stages, the five-year survival rate is greater than 95%. Gloria Gemma’s hope is that we can all form a partnership and create a valuable source of education and resources.
