2018 Cancer Care Day Results
Miller Plant Farm, York, PA was host to the 2nd Annual Cancer Care Day at Miller Plant Farm on Saturday, August 4, 2018. It was a huge success. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Patient Help Fund at WellSpan’s York Cancer Care Center at Apple Hill.
The event was made possible by generous donations from local community members and businesses, countless volunteers, friends, and family.
The day’s festivities began with the 2nd Annual Farm Fresh 5K. Dustyn Miller, 5th Generation Farmer at Miller Plant Farm, welcomed race goers by saying “this event has even more meaning this year” and went on to share the passing of his mother, Diane Miller, after her 3 year battle with Pancreatic Cancer, just 6 weeks prior. In lieu of the traditional moment of silence, he requested all race participants cheer and give a round of applause for everyone they knew who was affected by cancer.
Out of a field of 186 runners, Christopher Martin of York had a winning time of 20:54. Second place Dylan Ackerman of York with a time of 21:23 and Thomas Urrunaga, also of York, third with a time of 21:34. Miller Plant Farm employee, Lindee Anders of York repeats as top female with a finishing time of 23:35. Top male and female winners received a $50 gift card to the Miller Plant Farm.
Dave Miller, President & CEO of Miller Plant Farm conducted raffle drawings in the garden center, assisted by son Dustyn and his wife Christy, along with his grandchildren, 6th generation farmers Cameron Fauth and Palmer and Alexandra Miller. Thanks to all of the generous donors in our community who provided such exciting raffle items.
When all was said and done, Miller Plant Farm presented a check in the amount of $10,160.93 to WellSpan York's Cancer Center.
