Cancer Connection is able to offer all its programs and services free of charge because of the generosity of our community. We receive no funding from the United Way or the American Cancer Society. Instead, we are supported through individual donations, grants from foundations and businesses, and community benefits like the ones listed here.
Due to the overwhelming feedback from previous campers, we are camping out again...in the cold. The Cancer Connection Campers have convinced Monte to go once more into the freeze. And this time, for more dramatic effect, we are camping out in even more coldness! Monte and his band of chilly campers will brave the elements and raise as much money as they can for Cancer Connection!
Starting 6:00 AM Wednesday February 27th (Yes. FEBRUARY!) until at least 10:00 AM the following morning, we will be back out on the old courthouse lawn in Northampton
How can you help?
Donate! Give to a camper and help them meet their goal of raising $1,000 per tent. Search through the "donate to a participant or team" section.
Information about the Campout, including the entertainment schedule, will be posted at WRSI.
Listen all that day and into the night as Monte broadcasts live and be ready to call, go-online, or come by to make a donation. Stop by in person and enjoy the spectacle and the entertainment! Writing a check? Bringing your piggy bank? Make your gift at the Camp out! The Camp out will be at the foot of the Old Courthouse in downtown Northampton (corner of Main and Gothic streets).
Together, we can support Monte as he works tirelessly to make it fun for people to give. It's the biggest fundraiser of the year for Cancer Connection. Every dollar raised helps a person facing cancer. Please make a donation to support this critical resource.
Help us thank 93.9 The River FOR HOSTING the Camp out!
