This past June we hosted the third Team LIVESTRONG Challenge in Davis, CA. We know from years of doing these types of events that participants and donors like to see how their fundraising and generous gifts impact the local community.
We partnered with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation (SRCF) to create a fund that would give back a portion of the revenue raised in Davis to local, cancer related non-profit organizations. With the creation of this fund and the help of the SRCF, over $35,000 was distributed to 4 local organizations that provide cancer support, education or services!
We are very thankful to be able to give back to a community that has supported LIVESTRONG for so many years. Thank you to the SRCF and, certainly, to the participants and donors of this year’s Davis Challenge who made this happen!
