Why We Stampede
The Pumpkin Stampede is an annual 5K run/walk to help raise money for the Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund. These funds used to provide grants to families that are receiving cancer treatments and struggling to make ends meet. There are many other charities out there to help find a cure for cancer; we feel our funds are best used to provide direct financial support to local families. The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund partners with the Centegra Sage Cancer Center in McHenry, IL to help identify cancer patients eligible to apply for financial assistance grants.
