LINTHICUM, MD, May 8, 2020— NFM Lending is proud to be the returning Presenting Sponsor for the fifth annual Below the Belt – Stride and Thrive 5k and 1-mile run/walk on June 7, 2020. This virtual event will benefit the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service (KGOS) in the Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics. This will be NFM Lending’s fifth year sponsoring the event.

To promote the safety of the community while still celebrating gynecologic cancer survivors, the Stride and Thrive event will be held virtually. Participants will be able to complete a 5k and can submit their results via the results page. 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.”

“Obviously, we would love for this event to be live,” said David Silverman, Founder/CEO of NFM Lending, “but it doesn’t change our commitment and love for this cause. NFM is once again honored to be associated with such an amazing event. Despite being held virtually, I am hopeful the impact will be as good or better than years past.”

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

“It’s an honor for NFM Lending to be the ‘Presenting Sponsor’ once again for the Johns Hopkins Gynecologic Oncology Stride and Thrive event,” said Levinson. “This year we are going virtual, which means we can all participate in this incredible event. The Johns Hopkins Gynecologic Oncology Service is a world leader in surgery and oncology care for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer. Even during these challenging times, we are so proud to continue to support this mission and the people associated with it. I am so inspired by the patients, their families, the doctors, nurses, volunteers, and the participants that make this event so special.”

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