Benefiting: Run Over Cancer was formed in 2008 and our organization takes cancer and all illnesses in our community very seriously, as we all have been touched by a disease one way or another. There are so many Non-Profits in our community that raise money for research to help find a cure for cancer, but our Non-Profit works a little different. We help families who are currently suffering from the disease with paying the bills. Our future objective in this program is to take a family through the whole journey by allowing them to know that we have there meals taken care of during treatment, the housing arrangements, medical bills, etc.
