Troy Regional Medical Center’s signature balloon launch is scheduled for October 8 and will take place at the Tailgate area of ​​Troy University.

The Pike Medical Foundation and TRMC have announced that the 2022 campaign balloon release will be virtual this year. The Foundation will launch the balloons virtually live on the Troy University scoreboard beginning at 10 a.m.

“We are excited about this year’s event and look forward to record attendance,” said Rick Smith, CEO of Troy Regional Medical Center.

Tickets for the launch cost $100 each, however, Smith said many TRMC partners buy a “10-pack”.

The TRMC balloon release is an important fundraiser for TRMC.

Smith said that in 2021, the Pike Medical Foundation raised $60,000 through its balloon launch event.

“These Community Dollars were donated to the Troy Regional Medical Center, where the renovation and creation of the Women’s Diagnostic Center was completed,” Smith said. “These funds have helped us secure the latest state-of-the-art 3D CT-mammography unit, bringing the highest quality imaging here to our community.”

Smith said, along with board-certified breast imaging doctors at Montgomery Radiology, there’s no reason to travel for the best in early detection of breast cancer.

Smith said the continued community support is important and appreciated. TRMC continues to expand existing services and implement new services to ensure “health care close to home”.
