The Lincoln County Rodeo Association recently donated a $3,000 check to Marshfield Clinic’s Wausau/Weston cancer care patient fund.
During the past five years, the rodeo association has donated a total of $15,600 to the Clinic to help patients. The most recent donation was raised last summer during the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo and the Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign.
"We’re happy to help cancer patients and their families," said Gail Bloch, a member of the rodeo association.
The money was raised from the sale of Tough Enough to Wear Pink apparel, a quilt raffle and a 5K run and walk held in conjunction with the rodeo. Bloch recently presented the check to Marshfield Clinic Development Officer Ann Lucas.
“This money is earmarked for cancer patient care, helping those people with cancer during an especially difficult time,” Lucas said.
The Marshfield Clinic system provides patient care, research and education with more than 50 locations in northern, central and western Wisconsin, making it one of the largest comprehensive medical systems in the United States.
