The “Wheels to Heal” Bike Event will be held Sunday, April 29th.  This outstanding event gives you the opportunity to reward your special clients, business associates and yourself.

As a participant, you will be joining Synovus Financial Corp. and other leading corporate citizens to help the Columbus Regional Medical Foundation reach this year’s monetary goal for the John B. Amos Cancer Center.

The Celebrity Classic has grown from the two signature events, golf and tennis, to include 5K and 10K Runs and the Wheels to Heal Bike Ride. The Classic team also brings in the youth of our area to take advantage of the opportunity to learn from great tennis and golf pros in juniors’ clinics for each event.  Caring for those in need is a respected tradition in our community. Your support of the Celebrity Classic strengthens and enriches that tradition.


The Columbus Regional Medical Foundation

The Columbus Regional Medical Foundation was established in 1983 to support the health, medical and educational programs and services of The Medical Center. With its strong belief in strength through stewardship, the Foundation contributes countless hours and generous financial support to benefit the community. As we grow, the Columbus Regional Medical Foundation continues to identify ways to make the Columbus region a healthier place to flourish.

The Foundation is host for the Celebrity Classic Golf and Tennis Tournaments and 5K/10K Runs and Wheels to Heal Bike Ride. All proceeds from this year’s classic will benefit the John B. Amos Cancer Center. The Center provides a comprehensive, integrated service program for cancer patients and their families and remains on the leading edge of cancer treatment through technology, research, board-certified physicians and oncology-certified staff.

Columbus Regional Medical Foundation also supports Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). Through organizational and financial support, the Foundation participates in local CMN efforts to raise funds that help children receiving treatment at The Medical Center, one of 170 CMN-affiliated hospitals nationwide. Last year those efforts brought in more than $600,000 for children’s services at The Medical Center.

The Foundation also promotes training and continuing education in the health sciences through support of programs such as the Bunch McClellan Nursing Scholarship, the Fred Aranas Memorial Scholarship for Radiologic Technology and the Sue Schley Mathews Pediatric Nursing Fellowship Fund.

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
