One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, and the other two will know someone who is. We often show support for loved ones by wearing ribbons in colors that represent particular kinds of cancer. Although the type of cancer that affects each of us may be different, we are united in honoring and supporting people with cancer. The Colors of Cancer 5K Run and Walk is an opportunity to work together to build awareness, offer encouragement and raise funds to beat cancer in Forest County. Wear your “Colors of Cancer” T-shirt on race day to show your support, and show off your own colors of cancer while crossing the finish line.
The mission of Ties That Bind Us is to provide cancer prevention education and build a network of community volunteers to help local Forest County residents with the burdens of cancer. Ties That Bind Us is a local not-for-profit organization started to give back to the community members of Forest County, and is in partnership with the Saint Mary’s Hospital Foundation. The goal is to put dollars raised, directly back into the community.
