Spring into Summer – Fundraiser for CRCH!

Charles River Community Health is pleased to announce our Waltham fundraiser, Spring into Summer, an event celebrating the health center’s commitment to the Waltham community for more than 12 years! This breakfast and groundbreaking event will be held on June 21st from 8:30 to 10 am, at our new health center location, 43 Foundry Ave, Waltham.

Since opening in September, 2004, Charles River Community Health’s Waltham health center has grown tremendously to meet the needs of the community. About half of the 12,750 patients we see each year receive care at our Waltham site, 5,300 of whom live in Waltham. As we have outgrown our current facility, we have leased nearly 20,000 square feet of space at 43 Foundry Avenue in Waltham, which will offer a stateof-the-art and more spacious health center for the Waltham community.

Help us honor this important milestone at our fundraiser in June.

Please see our Event Invitation Here!

Please consider supporting our fundraiser and help us better serve the Waltham community – please see our Sponsorship Information and Event Details here!
