What is a Safety Net Medical Clinic?

Safety net medical clinics provide critical medical care to members of our community who are underinsured or uninsured. The Institute of Medicine defines the health care safety net as: “Those providers that. organize and deliver a significant level of health care and other related services to. uninsured, Medicaid, and other vulnerable populations”

What is Serotonin Surge Charities?

The Serotonin Surge Charities is an all volunteer, public benefit 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It was founded in 1999 to raise money for health care related causes in the Sacramento region. “Serotonin is the ‘good feeling’ brain chemical, and we want people to feel great about using their time, talents, and wealth to help others in need,” says Dr. John Chuck, founder and CEO. “We are always looking for newer and better ways to leverage volunteerism and collaboration to make this world a better place to live.”

To date, the Serotonin Surge Charities have raised over $4 million for its recipient organizations through special events that have included an annual fall golf tournament and springtime food, wine, and fashion festival.

How will this event benefit local clinics?

Through sponsorships, partnerships and race participation, the goal of the 2019 Serotonin Surge Feel Good 5K/10K Run or Walk is to provide the community with a feel-good event promoting health and fitness with a feel-good cause, while raising much needed funding for the clinics.

Target recipients include the following safety net medical clinics: Bayanihan Clinic, Clinica Tepati, CommuniCare Health Centers, CSERF’s SPIRIT Project, Elica Health Centers, Health & Life Organization (HALO), Imani Clinic, Joan Viteri Memorial Clinic, Knights Landing Clinic, MercyClinic Loaves & Fishes, Paul Hom Asian Clinic, Peach Tree Health operating at MercyClinic Northwood, WellSpace Health, and Willow Clinic.
