Cancer Center Community Crusaders Raise More Than $54K for Local Cancer Patients

Bennington, VT—June 28, 2019— The Cancer Center Community Crusaders, known as the 4Cs, hosted their 6th Annual Day of Celebration in coordination with Southwestern Vermont Health Care’s National Cancer Survivors Day on Saturday, June 1 at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center Campus in Bennington.  Eight crews and more than 400 attendees at the event helped the group raise a total of $54,158 for the year. This amount contributes to nearly $300,000 in support the group has raised for local cancer patients in its 6-year existence.

The day activities included the annual Cupcake Challenge, basket raffle, inspirational speeches, a magic show, and more. The program also included entertainment from DJ John Wooddell, the band All Ten & John, and Krissy Fauler, who sang the national anthem. Steph Ryder Photography took photos.

The Cancer Center Community Crusaders provide financial and emotional support to members of the community and their families as they strive to obtain the best cancer care and treatment possible. All funds raised by the Cancer Center Community Crusaders stay in the communities of Bennington and Windham counties in Vermont and nearby New York and Massachusetts. Patients need not receive treatment at Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center to be eligible for funds.
