Update: 2021 Double Creek Event cancelled

The Double Creek Event will not be held in 2021.  Please visit this webpage for information on future events.

 

About the Double Creek Event

Double Creek was established in 2003 to provide support to programs that benefit underinsured families. All money raised will benefit the Prescription for Caring program in York County for patients who are un- or underinsured and is designed to specifically meet the needs of those who cannot afford the cost of their medications. Prescription for Caring funds are used to lower out-of-pocket medication costs for those who meet financial eligibility requirements.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be used for the Prescription for Caring program. Last year, York County Prescription for Caring Program provided $246,720 in medication cost for 797 patients for an average of 180 patients served per month. Your participation in Double Creek helps these patients stay healthy!
