LINTHICUM, MD, May 24, 2019— NFM Lending is proud to be the returning Presenting Sponsor for the fourth annual Stride and Thrive 5k and 1-mile run/walk on June 9, 2019. This event will benefit the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service in the Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics. This will be NFM Lending’s fourth year sponsoring the event.

The Stride and Thrive will take place at Homewood Field at Johns Hopkins University. Over 1,000 participants are expected to attend. The event is run by an all-volunteer staff, and all proceeds will support life-saving gynecologic cancer research, cancer survivors, and women undergoing cancer treatment. According to their website, “Every 5 minutes, a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with a ‘below the belt’ gynecologic cancer. These cancers affect more than 100,000 women and cause over 30,000 deaths each year.”

“NFM is honored to be associated with such an amazing event,” said David Silverman, CEO of NFM Lending. “I am grateful we have so many caring team members that will donate their time to such a great cause.”

Mary Levinson, Branch Manager, coordinated NFM Lending’s involvement in the event.

“The Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service is a world leader in surgery and oncology care for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer,” said Levinson. “It’s an honor for NFM Lending to be the ‘Presenting Sponsor’ once again for this incredible event. I am so inspired by the patients, their families, the doctors, nurses, volunteers, and all the participants that make this event so special.”

NFM Lending looks forward to being part of such an important and impactful mission.
