We were excited to have a booth this year at the Sparta Area Cancer Support (SACS) for their annual Walk Rally, in Sparta, Wisconsin. This very worthwhile organization is dedicated to raising funds to support Cancer research and helping local cancer patients and their families.

Last year was the first time weattended this impressive event. The eventconsisted of various methods of fund-raising to include:
- Purchase ofluminaries (candles in honor of survivors& in memory ofloved ones lost to cancer)
- Walkers taking pledges for their cancer walk
- Purchase of raffle tickets for prizes
- Purchase of baked goods
Along with the fund-raising, attendees will also see:
- Awonderful ceremony honoring (by name) the survivors in attendance
- An impressive balloon release
- Much more!
We were honored to have been given permission to set up our booth at this worthy event this year.
There are many ways to give. We, at the Sanctuary For Cancer Caregivers,supported this event in 2008 with a financial contribution and with prize donations for the raffles and the purchase of luminaries. We didthe same for the 2009 Walk, as well.
Thereis an unusuallyhigh rate of cancer in our area.It is wonderful to see our community pull together and open up their wallets to help this most worthy of causes. We hope YOU contribute to your local cancer fund-raising events also. This devastating disease touches so many we know.
