MINNEAPOLIS – Mike Winton, noted Twin Cities’ philanthropist, a Pathways founder and Chair of Path to the Future Campaign, announced that Pathways: A Health Crisis Resource Center has achieved its $1 million goal to increase the capacity of the organization. Pathways provides its services from an award-winning building in Minneapolis’ Uptown area, helping people who have been newly diagnosed with cancer, AIDS, lung disease and other major illnesses.

The campaign was launched to help keep all the programs free and to provide for future needs.

A “Toast to Pathways” to mark the occasion will take place from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, July 16, at Pathways, 3115 Hennepin Ave. Ingrid Dilley, cancer survivor and co-founder of a groundbreaking program, Renewing Life, will be the special guest.

“As a pioneer in providing complementary healing service to the greater Twin Cities community, over the past 17 years Pathways has helped more than 14,000 people cope with life threatening or debilitating illnesses,” says Pathways Executive Director Howard Bell.

Research increasingly shows that participating fully in the process of healing and making choices on one’s own behalf are powerful factors in supporting the body’s immune system, and therefore, one’s overall health. The healing techniques and programs offered at Pathways enable participants to increase their self-esteem, improve their quality of life, support social connections and potentially, boost their body’s immune system.

Because all services are free of charge, Pathways eliminates a significant barrier for people for whom these types of services would be inaccessible because of their financial limitations.
