More than just a race.
The Quincy Medical Group Bridge to Gap Race started 20 years ago because of a patient, Oscar. Oscar wasn’t taking his medications as prescribed. In talking to his doctor, Dr. John Scott, he shared he couldn’t afford the cost. Oscar was not alone. Other patients also face the difficult choice of medication or food. The more Dr. Scott talked with his patients, the more he learned how creative they were in making a month of meds last longer. He knew this was to the detriment of their health and he decided to take action.
The Bridge the Gap Race was born.
Over the past 19 years, the Quincy Medical Group Foundation has donated over $900,000 to support our local MedAssist Program at Quincy Catholic Charities. Those funds have been used to access more than 55,000 prescriptions.
