Race for Hope 5k


We welcome your support in the fight against colorectal cancer. CRC is hitting people younger and younger. September 2016 we lost our 23 year old son after he battled the disease for 7 months. We need to continue to raise awareness in the under 50 population. Race For Hope is a 5k run/walk and 1 mile walk. There will be a silent auction, raffle, info tables for colorectal cancer education.

Cancer Care Run

All money raised by this event will benefit local patients battling cancer at Fairfield Medical Center through the Cancer Care Fund. This Fund was started by TWIG One in September of 2007 and over the past four years has grown to raise more than $140,000 for our cause. Nutritional supplements, wigs and diagnostic testing and surgeries for patients who could not afford them are just a few of the many things this fund helps to provide. Being able to receive treatment and support close to home is important to members of our community, and the TWIG One Cancer Care Fund is one way to make this possible.
