Inspired by our leader Steve Gavers, the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation was founded 15 years ago to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
When you support the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation you are helping us in our mission to:
1. Raise cancer awareness through education and screenings by
+ Providing funding to establish the cancer library at the Centegra Sage Cancer Center
+ Providing funding for sun safety programs at local grade schools
2. Improve cancer care for local residents by
+ Provide funding for services to cancer patients and their families at the Wellness Place
Our foundation is 100% volunteer meaning we provide 100% of event proceeds to our key partners, Centegra, RUSH, Family Health Partnership Clinic and the Wellness Place.

Over the past 14 years we have raised $5 million towards cancer research and awareness programs during the Barndance - our annual summer party and fundraiser - and this year is shaping up to be an event you won't want to miss.
The 2015 Barndance is set for July 18th , so mark those calendars now, so you don't forget!
