The Cancer Project Update: Creative Support Making a World of Difference
A huge thank you to these kind and compassionate folks who raised support for The Cancer Project:
Every year, Carl Cuda organizes a popular Car Cruise in Bethel, Pa., to raise money for a nonprofit. After attending a Cancer Project Food for Life class, Cuda—a cancer survivor—decided all proceeds from this year’s event should support The Cancer Project. More than 1,000 people attended the September Car Cruise and donated approximately $4,000 to help The Cancer Project promote cancer prevention and survival.
Kyle Hall recently ran the New York City Marathon to help raise awareness and funds for The Cancer Project. The organization has helped him introduce healthy eating to his family members and friends, who might not have otherwise learned about the links between nutrition and cancer. A plant-based diet helped Hall recover from a 2002 cancer diagnosis, and today it provides him with the energy to run marathons. Hall finished the race in 2 hours and 58 minutes and raised $1,870 to help continue the fight against cancer.
Rob Weseman recently became the first Saladmaster dealer to designate The Cancer Project as his official charity of choice. Weseman will donate up to $20 for every dinner hosted by his team, Lone Star Health Systems, in Euless, Texas. Weseman explains, “I support The Cancer Project because you can’t ever put enough money into prevention. What you eat and the way you prepare your food can literally change your whole life.”
