Help D. Patrick raise money

For participating in NC MedAssist Pancakes & Beer 5K

My Story…


Can we count on your support in dispensing hope?

Each year NC MedAssist hosts an annual charity beer and pancake run event to support its vision that ensures no eligible person in North Carolina has to choose between purchasing food or their needed medication.  NCMedAssist improves the patient’s health and lowers uncompensated health care costs for all stakeholders.

While I have been a board member for several years, this year is special as I am the now the Board Chair for NC MedAssist.  They will be hosting their 8th annual Pancakes and Beer 5K, Saturday December 11th at 9 am. I invite you to join Team Novant Health. The event is fun, family friendly but more importantly it helps raise the money needed to serve our neighbors. Please join by registering at and join Team Novant Health, today!  Be sure to search for team Novant Health under “view teams” on the left side of screen.  Use promo code NOVANT at check out to receive a $5 discount.  For every $200 donation we will help provide life-saving medications for one NC MedAssist patient for an entire year.

NC MedAssist roots began with Novant Health!  NC MedAssist launched in 1997 (as MedAssist of Mecklenburg) through the efforts of the Mecklenburg Medical Society Alliance with the assistance of a $55,000 grant from the employees of Presbyterian Hospital. Last year, NC MedAssist dispensed over $63 million in medicines for our patients across the state.

Your support in any manner matters.  Whether that be a monetary donation or sharing this opportunity with others that might share an interest in supporting our community.

If you register, I would encourage you to come out for the annual Pancakes and Beer 5K.  It is a lot of fun and you won’t regret.  For more information on the great work NC MedAssist provides please visit:
