This year, Pony Up is honored to partner with South Shore Health as the recipient of the event proceeds, specifically the Breast Cancer Center at South Shore Hospital.
“South Shore Health is a cause near to our hearts as we know many people locally that have benefitted from their best in class care,” said Pony Up Founder Alyssa Blowers Scordo, a Hingham native. “This year, the event is especially meaningful as our mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2019 and we have been grateful to have these incredible resources so close to home.”
Funds raised will be allocated to their cancer care program which is one of this health system's greatest strengths and is in clinical affiliation with Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's Hospital. Their cancer center treats more than 1,000 new patients annually right in the center of Weymouth. We are grateful to have their top-notch providers so close to home and appreciate the opportunity to come together with all you to give back and support their future efforts. Please visit www.southshorehealth.org for more information on this great cause.
The Pony Up committee was founded by Hingham natives Sarah Blowers Melia, Hilary Blowers Jenison, Alyssa Blowers Scordo, and Lois Blowers six years ago as a way to celebrate one of their favorite days of the year – the Kentucky Derby – while giving back to our community. This year their family is grateful to have Christine Smith and Patty McDonald’s expertise on the planning committee.
