A message from the President

Looking Ahead with great expectations!

As I enter my second year as President of the Board of Directors, I look forward to moving through 2021 with COVID-19 almost behind us now and continuing with our steadfast mission:

Helping Those Most Vulnerable Diagnosed with Cancer

The Mission of the Benedictine Health Foundation is to raise and distribute financial resources to those struggling with a cancer diagnosis and whose financial means limit their ability to access or receive the care that they need. We provide assistance to Ulster County residents and their families or those from neighboring counties receiving medical services in Ulster County.

We can look forward with great pride to a stronger and more resilient community. We will do our part to inspire hope and healing as we continue raising funds to support our community members who are struggling with a diagnosis of cancer.

With your ongoing commitment and support, we are encouraged and inspired to move forward with great expectations for an even brighter future.

I am happy to announce that we will be going back to a LIVE event as we have set the date for our 18th annual Bike for Cancer Care 5K Run/Walk event to be held on Sunday, September 26th at Dietz Stadium.

Details can be found on the Bike for Cancer Care website:


Thank you for your support of our organization,
