4Cs Raise Over $50,000

The Cancer Center Community Crusaders, known as the 4Cs, hosted their Day of Celebration in coordination with Southwestern Vermont Health Care’s National Cancer Survivors Day on June 1. Eight crews and more than 400 attendees at the Bennington event helped the group raise a total of $54,158; this amount contributes to nearly $300,000 in support the group has raised for local cancer patients in its six-year existence. The day’s activities included the annual Cupcake Challenge, a basket raffle, 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. For information, call 802-447-5017 or e-mail [email protected]
