Joyce’s Jog founders Karen Ponder and Steffey Vines presented Donalsonville Hospital with a generous donation to close out the thirteen year race tradition. Donalsonville Hospital was honored to receive the donation and will be able to offer free mammograms for the entire month of October.

James Moody, Chief Financial Officer at Donalsonville Hospital said “We are so thankful to Joyce’s Jog for allowing us to fulfill the legacy of Joyce Payne Henley by offering patients the best in 3D mammography diagnostic testing.”

While Joyce’s Jog has officially ended, the tradition and meaning will live on in the newly created Rejoice Run & Mom’s Mile.

“As we come to the end of the great community event known a Joyce’s Jog, I would like to thank the Ponder and Payne families for allowing us to honor Joyce’s memory. The event enjoyed great support from its sponsors and the community for 13 years.  We hope to have the continued support of the community and our sponsors moving forward with our new tradition,” said Mrs. Vines, Rejoice Run founder.

The annual run will continue to benefit Seminole County residents who have been touched by cancer. More information can be found at www.donalsonvillehospital.org
