Fundraisers

Join one of our fundraisers so families experiencing the negative impact of a cancer diagnosis in our community will have the support services, education, wellness programs, social activities, resources, and a compassionate community they need to help move through a very difficult and stressful time in their life in ONE place, FREE of charge

Host a Fundraiser.  We welcome businesses, individuals, organizations, and civic groups to hold fundraisers or host parties to benefit our Community Cancer Support & Wellness Center.  Invite your employees, friends, family, and colleagues to learn more about the cancer support services and programs we provide and have fun at your facility or venue of your choice.  Some ideas are concerts/musical benefits, dog walks, wine tastings, golf/sports tournaments, corn hole tournaments, BBQs, bike/motorcycle rides, runs/walks, painting for a cause, trivia/bingo/bunco night, card parties, etc. Journey to be FREE will assist with marketing and local media advertising.

Host a fundraiser to honor the memory of a loved one or celebrate a cancer survivor’s milestone. Your name/logo will be recognized on our “sponsor” page and Facebook. 

Percentage of Proceeds. Local restaurants, breweries, retail shops, car dealerships, or outdoor adventures can designate a day or weekend where a percentage of proceeds generated are donated to support much-needed cancer support programs.  Journey to be FREE will assist with marketing and local media advertising. If interested in participating, please contact us.  Your name/logo will be recognized on our “sponsor” page and Facebook.
