About The Event:
The purpose of this event is to raise money to donate towards cancer research. The Cancer Research Institute has been making strides in its battle against cancer, but additional funding for research is necessary. According to the United Nations’ Cancer Research Agency, by the year 2030, cancer “will kill more than 13.2 million people a year”. That number is almost double the amount of people that died from cancer in 2008. It is our goal to use this benefit as a way to aid the Cancer Research Institute in their efforts to treat, control, and prevent cancer.
