The Sport of Giving recently donated nearly $20,000 to Northside Hospital-Forsyth for the purchase of new mammography equipment and patient education materials at its Breast Care Center.

The organization was recognized at Northside’s Tennis Against Breast Cancer event Oct. 1 at Windermere Golf Club in Cumming.

The Sport of Giving, formerly VolleyFest, is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness in support of women’s cancer care and prevention in metro Atlanta.

It has been a generous supporter of Northside Hospital-Forsyth, having contributed more than $115,000 to the hospital’s breast care services in recent years.

Lynn Jackson, administrator of the local hospital, said in a statement that the "money will go a long way toward providing expanded services and better care for our patients."

"We are grateful to the Sport of Giving and to the local neighborhoods of Laurel Springs, St. Ives and the Fields Club for once again selecting Northside Hospital-Forsyth as a beneficiary of their events," Jackson said.
