This is a mostly-flat out and back course that runs entirely along the Riverside Park Greenway.
Surry Medical Ministries is a local, private, non-profit agency that was started in 1993 by a group of medical professionals to address the primary care needs of people in our community who do not have health insurance nor qualify for government medical assistance. Since the doors opened 20 years ago, on Tuesday nights, volunteer doctors, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and clerical staff work to provide almost $20,000 worth of services. During each of the roughly 4 hours that the clinic is open per week, these professionals serve a standing-room only crowd of our neighbors on a first come-first serve basis.
The clinic survives by receiving less than 17% of its funding from the United Fund and the North Carolina Free Clinics Association. The 83+% remainder of the operational budget is provided through fundraising and donations, churches and individuals.
