What is it?
In 2014, all of the cities and towns in Rockingham County declared April as Rockingham County Cancer Awareness Month. During this time, it is our objective to increase awareness of the resources available to the hundreds in our county battling cancer every day. We want to make more folks aware of what our Fund offers and parallel to that, we hope to raise funds to make it possible to continue helping even more local patients.
30 Days of Impact is our campaign to raise awareness and funds to assist as many local cancer patients and their families financially, emotionally, and educationally so that they can better fight the cancer. We need your help. We are reaching out to individuals, companies, churches, schools, and organizations to put together their “team” to assist in our mission. Each team will have a $1,000 fundraising goal, with the understanding that as little or as much that is raised is truly appreciated and will make a tremendous difference to local cancer patients. We are the only agency that services 100% of Rockingham County and does not receive funding from the government or United Way. Therefore, your support is that much more significant.
Your team’s support can range from a multitude of things. Your company could have a change collection for a period of time during April, you could have other fundraisers, or you could simply email your fundraising page out to all employees and they could donate directly. Check out the campaign here.
