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 WellSpan’s Prescription for Caring program, which provides medications to uninsured patients, underinsured patients, and those who are insured but are struggling with multiple healthcare issues and life circumstances.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be used for the Prescription for Caring program. This past year, 90% of those served had $30,000 or less in household income. This pharmacy program provided more than 15,000 free life-sustaining medications to patients without insurance. Your participation in Double Creek helps these patients stay healthy!
