Race, Remember, and Fundraise

Through your support, participation, and additional fundraising, more patients will receive the necessary treatments, medications, and services they need at the end of life.

By fundraising you help us to continue to meet the needs of all patients and their families. The funds you raise can help in numerous ways. Not only will they ensure those left behind receive the help they need to cope, they also provide additional support for the unmet needs of patients and their families in Northwest Michigan.
